New Delhi, March 28: Minister of state in the Prime Minister's Office V Narayanasamy on Thursday rejected charges made by Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav that the Congress is "cheat and clever" and said that the ruling coalition at the Centre would complete its term.

Narayanasamy's reaction came a day after Yadav termed the Congress as unreliable. He also said that neither the Congress nor the BJP would be able to form the government in 2014. Yadav said this while addressing a rally at Etawah in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday.

Saying the Congress always does things with the elections in mind, Yadav said the former waived farmers' loan slightly before the elections which saw them winning the polls with a convincing majority. Yadav asked the people not to fall for Congress's tactics.

The SP chief, who stirred up political circles by praising senior BJP leader L K Advani, hinted at his ambitions to play a larger role in the national politics. He said the coming Lok Sabha polls are the real tests as "Delhi means everything". He said state governments don't do much and said they were like 'patwari' (revenue official) while the government is Delhi is akin to the collector.

Yadav's son Akhilesh, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, said the party should next target to see its chief to be in throne in Delhi. Yadav also claimed that his party would play the role of a kingmaker and the party workers should work hard towards that direction.

He said the faith with which people brought the SP in power in Uttar Pradesh will be shown in the Lok Sabha elections as well.
