Blaming Congress for formation and survival of the BJP-led government at the centre, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav alleged that both the parties have joined hands in a 'clandestine manner' and the fight between them is only for 'public consumption'.
Addressing poll rallies at Multai, Amla and here Yadav accused Congress of having created Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi problems and said BJP derived maximum advantage out of it and was able to form NDA government at the centre.
The Samajwadi Party supremo also alleged that the economic polices of BJP and the Congress were the same and the NDA government was following the path shown by former finance minister at the centre.
He said if Congress provided support at the right time Samajwadi Party would have been in power.
He said because of wrong policies of congress there has been massive exodus towards urban centres while rural areas were neglected and their economy ruined.
Countries giving priority to agriculture and farmers have prospered, Yadav said adding that the country can never progress if farmers are neglected and assaulted.
The condition of farmers in Uttar Pradesh and other parts of the country is the same as in Madhya Pradesh, he said adding that they have been ruined everywhere.
