Launching a scathing attack on Left and Congress, BJP on Sunday accused both the parties of "shadow boxing" and said they will form a post poll alliance.

"The Prime Minister recently said that his experience with the Left has been good and Congress cannot form a government without their help but the only glitch is that they will have to leave their demand of scrapping of Indo-US nuclear deal," BJP national Spokesperson S S Ahluwalia said in Kolkata.

"Not only that, the same thing echoed in Karat's statement when he said that Left will have no problem in taking Congress support, if needed, to form a government" Ahluwalia added.

He said "it is clearly evident what kind of politics Congress-Left are doing. This is just an eyewash and both the parties are ready to sit for negotiations in a post poll situation".

On Pranab Mukherjee's recent statement that Mamata Banerjee will be a cabinet minister if the UPA comes to power, Ahluwalia said "so we are supposed to believe that Congress will form a government with Left Front supporting them and Mamata Banerjee participating in the government. Isn't it interesting? We want to see that".
