BJP says UPA fraught with contradictions
Jabalpur, Feb 26 (UNI) The Centre's UPA regime is at the mercy of an alliance fraught with internal contradictions, BJP spokesman Prakash Jawadekar alleged today.
''On the other hand, the predecessor NDA government was above such contradictions and that is the principal difference between the alliances. Most UPA constituents are at loggerheads in Congress-ruled states and hell-bent on contesting elections against one another,'' he said in a chat with media here.
Pointing out that communist parties were opening fronts against the Centre, Mr Jawadekar added that the leftists were contesting polls against the Congress in West Bengal and Kerala.
Referring to alleged disputes in the SP and Congress, he felt they formed a major obstacle to smooth functioning. ''UPA constituents are united only in protest against the BJP and each one of them is busy attempting to have its conditions fulfilled,'' Mr Jawadekar said.
He alleged that though Dr Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister, power was in Congress President Sonia Gandhi's hands and that was an ''unfortunate situation'' for the country.
''The Centre is intervening in CBI work and certain recent incidents clearly proved it. The BJP has decided to organise a six-day nationwide public awakening campaign, from March 21, against the Centre's anti-people policies. Demonstrations will be held at 500 district towns,'' Mr Jawadekar added.
Responding to a question, he reiterated that there was no possibility of expelled BJP leader Uma Bharti's return to party ranks and the chapter was closed.
