Deputy Prime Minister LK Advani said on Monday that the next Lok Sabha elections would be held on time and the current round of Assembly polls cannot be described as semi-finals.

"In semi-finals, there are four teams and now the contest is only between the BJP and the Congress," the Deputy Prime Minister said during a brief stopover at the Mana airport in Raipur.

Advani said that even the Lok Sabha elections would be a fight only between the BJP and the Congress.

He said that allegations against Dilip Singh Judeo and six Union Ministers had backfired on the Congress.

"Not only the Judeo episode but even the allegations against six ministers were proving to be costly for the Congress and now they have boomeranged on it," Advani said.

He said that as far as probity in public life is concerned if people who do not have any credibility level such allegations then what could be done.
