Lucknow: Accusing Congress, SP and BSP of
having a tacit understanding, BJP national vice-president
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday said people would punish them in the
Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.

"While Congress indulged in record loot in 2G spectrum
case at the Centre, SP and BSP loot the National Rural Health
Mission (NRHM) money during their regimes in the last six and
a half years," Naqvi told reporters here.

"Congress, SP and BSP looted public money like dacoits and
ignored the interests of the state. People will punish them in
the Assembly elections," he said.

Referring to financial irregularity of Rs 5,000 crore in
the last six-and-a-half years as pointed out by CAG in its
special audit report, Naqvi said SP and BSP were in power in
the state during this period. Both these parties were
supporting Congress-led UPA government at the Centre, he said.

Alleging that all the three parties supported each other
on corruption issue, he said that if BJP was voted to power
then an inquiry would be conducted into all scams and
properties of guilty seized.

Naqvi ruled out any post-poll alliance with SP or BSP at
any cost.
