Addressing a rally -- his first in the capital as BJP's prime ministerial candidate -- he said UPA was burdened by "governments within governments" which has been affecting the overall growth and development of the country.

"The pride of the Prime Minister has been brought down by his own party. Congress party vice president has committed the sin of disrespecting the Prime Minister," he said.

Exhorting people to bring the 'dream team' of BJP to power in 2014, he asked them to throw out UPA which is "deeply entrenched" in corruption.

"Today the issue is whether the country will run on the whims of the prince or on the basis of the Constitution," he said, alleging that Congress leaders were "disrespecting" the Indian Constitution, Parliament, democracy and the Cabinet.

Launching a frontal attack on UPA, he said all political allies of UPA are running individual governments because of which nation's growth and development have been severely affected.

"This government is mired in corruption. Instead of finding solutions to problems, it has stopped functioning. This government is paralysed. The UPA government is immersed in Gandhi-bhakti. The Gandhi-bhakti refers to currency notes which they are collecting in tonnes," he alleged.

"Coalition governments are formed on arithmetic but run on chemistry. Till the chemistry matches, such government cannot do any public good. Though UPA coalition government is together, there is no coordination...because of which the country is not moving forward," he said.

"The country needs a dream team in 2014, not this dirty team. This government has no vision - look at all the budgets and plans, only the dates change," he added.
