Bangalore, Jul 5 (UNI) Terming the new political arrangement between the Congress and the Samajwadi Party (SP) as the ''greatest unholy alliance,'' Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Venkaiah Naidu today demanded a public explanation from both the parties in this regard.

Talking to newspersons here, Mr Naidu said both the party leaders were all along trading accusations against each other. The people of the country want to know the ''deal'' between the two parties, he added.

It was unfortunate that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had bowed down to the pressure from the United States and ignored the interests of the country, he charged.

To a question, the BJP leader said Dr Singh had no other option but to seek a vote of confidence once the Communist parties announced their final decision to withdraw the support to the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

The confidence vote should cover various issues such as inflation, in addition to the nuclear deal, Mr Naidu felt.

Asked whether the Opposition would move a no-confidence motion against the UPA government, he said it would be decided when the Parliament session was summoned.
