New Delhi: Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said here yesterday he will deliberate on supporting the UPA government when the time comes, even as the Congress rejected his charge that CBI was used to influence its decision on FDI in retail and the jobs quota bill.

"The party will think over the issue (on supporting UPA) at an appropriate time," Yadav told reporters. The SP supports the Congress-led UPA government from outside. The former UP chief minister also accused the government of entrapping him through the CBI.
"The government has entrapped me through the CBI," he said adding: "I am not afraid of the CBI."

"There is no question of any influence. There is no proof of it," Congress spokesperson P.C. Chacko told reporters.

"The SP and the BSP took their positions on FDI on their own. I don't think a leader of Mulayam Singh Yadav's stature would be afraid of CBI," Chacko said.
