UPA policies led to Guj rout: Sharad Yadav

Ratlam, MP, Dec 26 (UNI) Janata Dal (United) President Sharad Yadav today alleged that the ''anti-majority'' policies of the Centre's United Progressive Alliance regime led to the Congress rout in neighbouring Gujarat and would result in a bitter harvest at the next general elections.

''Every policy of the UPA government is anti-people. Handing over the retail market to multi-national companies has forced crores of people into unemployment. Every three minutes a farmer kills himself. Inflation has made life hell for the common man,'' he told mediapersons here.

Responding to queries regarding the Lok Sabha polls scheduled in 2009, Mr Yadav claimed that the hustings would take place earlier and the UPA would bite the dust.

''A single party coming to power at the Centre is now a mere dream. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will assume the reins.

Efforts are underway to expand the NDA,'' he explained.

Reacting to NDA Convenor George Fernandes' ''inviting'' Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to Delhi, Mr Yadav alleged that Mr Fernandes' words were now worthless as he was a leader past his prime.

''The JD(U) has concurred over former Deputy Premier L K Advani being declared the Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate,'' he added.
