Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav Wednesday walked out of the Lok Sabha in protest against the Lokpal bill, saying the "dangerous bill" would lead to anarchy.

"This is a dangerous bill. It will lead to anarchy. You must withdraw it," Mulayam Singh urged UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi before he and his party colleagues trooped out of the house.

He also asked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader LK Advani why the BJP supported the bill. "You must think Advaniji... It will be a blot on the nation.

"The BJP is supporting the Congress. Are these two parties alone clean and the others are not?

"No state employee will work. There will be no development. We will go back 10 years."

Stating that public representatives were supreme in democracy, Mulayam Singh said after the passage of the Lokpal bill, even an inspector will be able to question the prime minister.
