Kaithal, Dec 11 (UNI) The United National Progressive Alliance (UNPA) will emerge as an effective third political force on the national scene after the next parliamentary elections and will form the next government at Centre, INLD supremo and former Haryana Chief minister Om Parkash Chautala said here today.
While addressing a press conference here, Mr Chautala said in the next Lok Sabha polls, Congress and BJP will not be able to get mandate as people have lost faith in these parties and in such a situation the UNPA would become the natural choice of the people.
He said regional parties will continue to play an important role and even some national parties will have no option but to extend support to UNPA in the formation of government at the Centre.
While commenting on the performance of present Haryana government, Mr Chautala alleged that the leaders of ruling Congress party had become 'property dealers' and they have no time to solve the problems faced by the people.
Mr Chautala said he was on a ''mass contact programme'' and had covered about 2800 villages and will cover all the villages of the state before the next Lok Sabha polls.
He took to task the government for its mismanagement on the power front and said that prevailing power crisis had aggravated the problems of the people and long power cuts have paralysed normal life in the state.
He said though the government had been making tall claims to improve power supply but it had miserably failed to keep its promises.
Mr Chautala alleged that the power to be generated from power houses being set up in Haryana will be ''diverted to Delhi as it will be needed there to ensure uninterrupted supply during 2009-2010 Commonwealth Games.' He said there was ''every possibility that Delhi will be supplied power at the cost of Haryana''.
