Balrampur: Firing a fresh salvo at Samajwadi Party, Union minister Beni Prasad Verma has said that Mulayam Singh Yadav's party will win only four seats in the Lok Sabha polls and there will be a "funeral procession for the party".
Beni, who recently triggered a storm by stating that Yadav allegedly has "terrorist links", said, "Congress will fight all the 80 Lok Sabha seats in UP and will win 40."
"We will not let BJP win more than 10 seats. Behenji ( Mayawati) will win 36. And of whom you are talking about (SP) will win four seats and there will be a funeral procession for that party," the Congress leader told reporters here.
He was replying to questions on the prospects of various parties in UP in the next Lok Sabha polls.
The Union steel minister's remarks come at a time when Yadav has been breathing fire against the government.
Verma had recently angered the SP chief by his comments against him.
Yadav had then demanded his resignation during meetings with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi following which Verma had expressed regret.
