Lucknow, Aug 2 (UNI) Asserting that both the Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party were equally responsible along with Congress for the price hike and other failures, Bharatiya Janata Party president Rajnath Singh today ruled out any relationship in future either with the BSP or SP.
''BJP will not play with the sentiments of the people by going in alliance with BSP or SP before the Lok Sabha polls or after it'', he announced.
Addressing a mammoth 'Bhanda Phor' rally here at the Jyoti-ba-Phule park in the Chowk area, Mr Singh said the situation in the state, which was worse in the previous Mulayam Singh Yadav regime had gone to worst in the present Mayawati government.
''Both, the SP and BSP had supported the UPA government at the Centre and should be held equally responsible for the miseries of the people particularly rise in prices of essential commodities'', he said.
He also categorically denied any move by the party to take the support of the BSP after the Lok Sabha polls. ''BJP had always done the politics of ideology and never supported the parties run on caste or communal lines,'' he claimed.
Making a scathing attack on the UPA government at the Centre for the cash-for-vote scam and rise in terrorism, Mr Singh reiterated that BJP had never compromised with democratic norms and country's internal security.
'' The PM should have resigned rather than opting to save the government through illegal means and insulting the democratic set up of the country'', he said.
He also held the BSP and SP equally responsible for rise of terrorist acts in UP. ''While, SIMI gained grounds during Mulayam regime, the HuJI spread its tentacles in the present BSP tenure'', he alleged.
Claiming that the exit of UPA government was imminent due to growing resentment among the masses, he said NDA would be the only choice before the people for its past good experiences witnessed during the successful tenure of Atal Bihari Vajpayee. '' Mr Lal Krishna Advani as PM of the country could only give respite to people from the spiralling prices of essential commodities and rising inflation,'' he said.
He also thanked the people for supporting the agitation against the Jammu and Kashmir government's decision to withdraw the land given to Amarnath Shrine Board and announced that it will not allow the government to destroy the Ram Setu at any cost. Mr Singh, who visited Ram Setu yesterday, said his party will sacrifice everything to save the Setu, associated with the religious sentiments of the majority community.
