PM hails Mulayam's support to end logjam in Parliament

New Delhi,August 11: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hit out at Congress for "misusing" Parliament to stop the country's growth and hailed SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for 
"understanding this conspiracy" and working to end the logjam in the House.

Addressing the last scheduled BJP parliamentary party meet in the Monsoon session, Modi spoke of some people, a reference to top Congress brass, who are working to stall economic growth,Union Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy told reporters after the meeting.

"He expressed his gratitude to those, especially Muyalayam Singh Yadavji, and all those parties who have felt that this is a conspiracy to stop the country's progress. He hailed them and asked the party 
and members to do so as well," Rudy said.

The SP supremo yesterday broke ranks with the opposition which has been agitating in Parliament over the Lalit Modi row and the Vyapam scam, saying, "Enough is enough... We will not back you if you keep protesting." 

This came as a surprise to Congress as Yadav had last week extended his party's support to Congress after 25 of its members were suspended by the Speaker.
