Agra: Favouring a caste-based census, former
BJP leader and Jan Kranti Party chief Kalyan Singh has said it
would bring about "revolutionary changes" in national
politics.

The caste-based census would change the policies and
strategies of political parties as well as governments, Singh
told reporters here last night.

Attacking both the BSP and the SP for "patronising"
criminals, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister alleged that
half of the legislators in the two parties had "shady"
character.

Demanding derecognition of political parties having
criminal elements, Singh termed as a "farce" BSP`s drive to
clean up the party of criminals.

He also described the Samajwadi Party as a "party of
criminals".

Dubbing BJP as a "party of capitalists", Singh ruled out
rejoining the party.
