Lucknow, June 22 (UNI) The Uttar Pradesh unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today terming the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party's (BSP) decision to withdraw support from the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at the Centre as a ''political stunt,'' contradicted any alliance between Chief Minister Mayawati and the BJP in future.

''There would not be any pre-poll or post-poll alliance with the BSP,'' BJP president Ramapati Ram Tripathi said while addressing media here.

He said, ''how can a party like BJP could go for an alliance with opportunistic BSP.'' The withdrawal of the support from the UPA was an effort to divert the attention of the people of the state from the misrule and the deteriorating law and order situation faced by the masses, Mr Tripathi charged.

Yesterday, BSP withdrew its support from the UPA government and it was reported that the party might join hands with the BJP and National Democratic Alliance (NDA) before the next Lok Sabha polls.

The BJP leader said his party was fully prepared for the Lok Sabha polls. The election campaign in the state would be launched by party's prime ministerial candidate L K Advani at Kanpur.

''The party has examined the poll prospect of all the 80 seats in the state and later a panel of candidates names would be suggested to the central high command,'' he said.

Demanding intervention from the centre and the state government into Nepal government's decision of stopping flow of water in the Gandak canal that is affecting farming in four districts of UP, Mr Tripathi said the Centre should immediately talk to the Nepal government as it was affecting farmers of both UP and Bihar.

The BJP state president also alleged that rampant corruption in the Bundelkhand region, particularly by the ministers of the Mayawati government, were hindering the developmental works.

''The BSP government should immediately release a white paper on the developmental works in Bundelkhand and order appropriate probe into the financial frauds,'' he demanded.
