Jaunpur, Oct 13: Former Maharashtra minister for home and Mumbai Congress Committee president Kripa Shankar Singh on Monday, Oct 13 said the possible SP-Congress alliance would bar the BJP from coming to power at the Centre.
Talking to mediapersons, Mr Singh, who was in his home district said Uttar Pradesh has 80 Lok Sabha seats and if the SP-Congress nexus was brought to effect, BJP would fail to form it's NDA government at the Centre.
He said, in Maharashtra, the era of Shiv Sena and BJP is about to end and the Congress and Mr Sharad Pawar's Nationalist Congress Party alliance would bring maximum seats in the LS polls.
Mr Singh also criticised the UP Chief Minister Mayawati for taking away the land alloted by the Congress Chairperson Sonia Gandhi for a train coach factory at her constituency and saying there are different ways to express professional grudge, but no compromise should be made as far as development is concerned.
Development works in UP stagnated after the BSP government resumed power, Mr Singh said adding Ms Mayawati was spending public funds in parks and monuments and development is not their objective.
The Congress leader said poor law and order in the state is forcing industralists to invest in other states but UP and those working in the state were suffering losses due to poor power supply.
