Former BJP ideologue KN Govindacharya has said there is hardly any difference in the policies of Congress and BJP as both are supporting the rich, and suggested that the rival political parties should fight the next general elections together.

"Difference of opposition have vanished in the country as both the BJP and the Congress were supporting policies helping rich and there was no one to raise issues of poor," said Govindacharya in Ballia on Saturday night.

BJP and Congress should contest next Lok Sabha polls together so that Opposition benches remained vacant from where "voices of poor and downtrodden could be raised", he said.

About Narendra Modi, Govindacharya said by showing enmity towards his party leader Sanjay Joshi he has botched his prospects of becoming Prime Minister.
