New Delhi, June 2 (ANI): Union Minister for Law and Justice M Veerappa Moily here on Wednesday said that the alliance at the national-level doesn't mean it will be same at State-level but, at the same time, the tie-up of partners in the ruling United Progressive Alliance is firm.

Replying to a question related to Trinamool Congress chief Mamta Banerjee, Moily said: "Miss Mamata (Banerjee) is our partner in UPA we are working some arrangements in that, whenever we have an alliance that doesn't mean that in every election we go together."

Moily was speaking on the sidelines of a function hosted by the Bar Council of India (BCI) to mark the launch of its website in the national capital.

Responding to another poser on the government policy vis-'-vis socio economic development in Maoist prone areas, Moily said numerous schemes have been formulated for the poor and the landless to prosper as such the ultras should not take law into their own hands.

He mentioned the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme is an ideal project to benefit the rural masses.

"The programme which is introduced for the settlement of the tribals in respective forest areas the Act which has been passed by UPA One government is also to meet that kind of challenge, so we are simultaneously addressing all these question so that no body feel(s) elevated from the programme of the government and we care for them and that is how we nurture them. Law and order is also a question because nobody can take law and order into their hands," said Moily. (ANI)
