Ghaziabad: BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad
on Thursday termed as "mockery" Rahul Gandhi`s act of tearing up a
piece of paper at an election meeting in Lucknow, saying it
would not help him attract voters.
"Tearing a piece of paper at an election meeting by Rahul
Gandhi is an illogical act and full of mockery. It will do no
magic to attract voters," the BJP general secretary said.
Accusing BSP and SP of making "only promises", the
Congress general secretary yesterday tore a piece of paper at
an election meeting to drive home the point that "mere lists"
of assurances were of no use.
"They promise that they will give power, water,
employment and if not employment then unemployment allowance
... this is mere list of assurances ...," Rahul had said at an
election meeting and tore a paper it to stress his point.
Addressing a press conference here, Prasad also took a dig
at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and said as an economist he
has failed to control price rise.
Regarding government formation in Uttar Pradesh, he said
the BJP will not enter into any post-poll alliance with SP or
BSP, and will sit in opposition if it did not get majority.
