He said that the disintegration of the NDA will pave the way for a political re-alignment in the country.

"A stable and secular alternative led by Congress will come to power after the Lok Sabha elections," he said.

"The number of seats of BJP and its allies will reduce drastically in the last phase of polling," he said.

Castigating the BJP for "betraying the electorate by failing to fullfil promises made by it in 1999," he said the voters of the country would throw the BJP out of power as the saffron party's rule was marked with scams and scandals.
