Ballia: Slamming the BJP and the Congress,
Janata Dal (United) president Sharad Yadav on Sunday alleged both
these parties were conspiring to engineer communal riots in
poll-bound Uttar Pradesh to get votes.

"What the Congress has done during its rule in the
state?" he asked.
"Whether it is the 2G spectrum or the Commonwealth Games
scam -- all happened during the Congress regime," Yadav said.

chance to govern, it would ruin the state.
He said had former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee
was in good condition, the JD(U)-BJP alliance would not have

a constituent of the NDA.
