Coming out in support of hockey players, who recently won the Asia Cup, Samajwadi party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav criticised the step-motherly treatment meted out to them.

"Cricket is getting more importance in comparison to other games which is not good. Cricket is game of colonial era," Yadav said in reply to a question.

"Despite this money is raining on the cricket team, the team which had won the Asia Cup got nothing," he said.
