BJP calls SP-Cong tie up a ‘political bluff’
After official announcement of an alliance between Congress and incumbent Samajwadi Party on Tuesday, BJP called it a “political bluff”. The party’s general secretary Siddharth Nath Singh mentioned, “The great alliance has been formed already between the people of Uttar Pradesh and the development mantra of Bharatiya Janata Party.”
Making a scathing attack on the Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, the BJP said that Gandhi had attacked the UP CM and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav for his mis-governance, and now his party is all set to join hands with him.
While taking to media Siddharth Nath Singh added, “Why has Congress withdrawn its most potential CM face Sheila Dixit’s name? How they can rely on Akhilesh’s governance now?”
Senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu also dubbed the talks of Congress and Samajwadi Party (SP) coming together to take on the saffron party in UP polls as a “natural alliance” of the “rejected and dejected” people.
“Both of them together formed disorderly allies during UPA regime and ruined the country. Now they want to experiment UPA two in Uttar Pradesh. Best of Luck to them,” Naidu told reporters on the sidelines of an event here.
Taking at a dig at the possible alliance, Naidu said, “It is a natural alliance of the people who are rejected and dejected.”
The Minister was responding to a query related to Congress declaring that it has decided to tie up with SP to take on BJP in the politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh.
Naidu claimed that people do not want the SP government in the state because they have experienced “corruption, torture of women, lawlessness and no development” during its regime. Earlier, AICC General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad said that he was confident that the SP-Congress alliance would form the next government in Uttar Pradesh.
Azad, who is in-charge of party affairs in UP, said this was just a beginning of the alliance process and the nitty gritty would be decided in the next one or two days.
