Patna, Jul 8 (UNI) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said the days of the UPA government at the Centre were numbered and maintained that the Nuke deal, which created a political crisis in the country, was not in the interests of the nation.

Addressing his party workers, Mr Kumar said the 123 deal was ''irrelevant'' and the people of the country would never accept it.

The UPA Government at the Centre was counting its last days, he said.

Mr Kumar claimed that both UPA and RJD would be wiped out in the next electoral battle in Bihar, saying the alliance would not be able to even open its account.

He appealed to the party workers to be prepared for the next Lok Sabha election and asked them to evolve public consensus against the ''apathetic'' attitude of the Centre.

He said the UPA Government had miserably failed to check the soaring prices and would have to face the consequences in the elections as the people were facing the pangs of high prices.

He also blamed the Centre for adopting ''double standard'' in terms of development of Bihar.

He alleged that it was Railway Minister Lalu Prasad, who prevented industry giant Mukesh Ambani from making investments in the state even after the latter had assurd him of the same in a meeting during the latters state visit.

This apart, the authorities of the HPCL were threatened for showing interest in revival of two closed sugar mills of the state.

Similar was the attitude of the Centre in flood relief work, he said alleging that even after the assurance the Centre had failed to provide relief measures to the flood-ravaged people of the state.
