Singh, while campaigning for Kalraj Mishra who is contesting from Deoria, said, "Although SP, BSP and Congress appear to be different party, they are all one. The join hands after elections to form government."
He said SP and BSP are equally responsible for inflation and corruption and appealed to the people to "punish" these parties during the elections.

"The borders are not safe during the UPA rule. Indian soldiers were killed but government remained a mute spectator," he said.
Deoria will be going to polls in the last leg of elections to be held on May 12 where Mishra is facing contest from Niyaz Khan of BSP, Baleshwar Yadav of SP and Sabha Kumar Kushwaha of Congress.
