Roshanlal Verma, a three-time BJP lawmaker from Shahjahanpur's Tilhar constituency said he felt frustrated and was under immense mental stress. "People associated with the Samajwadi Party are levelling baseless allegations against me as part of a conspiracy," Mr Verma said.
"These false charges have left me so frustrated that I feel like committing suicide," he said.
Recently, a woman staged a sit-in at the collectorate officein the district, alleging that she had been raped by the lawmaker's son, Manoj Verma.
"SP supporters are not able to digest this and are out to level such allegations to tarnish my image...I have asked the DM and the SP to get these charges probed to bring out the truth," he said.
