The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government was involved in all the recently unearthed scams, including spot- fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), and the involvement of some of its ministers would emerge, Janata Party leader Subramaniam Swamy said here Wednesday.

"The names of some UPA ministers will soon surface in the IPL spot-fixing racket," he told reporters here. "There can be no scams and scandals without the blessings of the UPA government. They are in Coalgate, Commonwealth Games scandal and also the IPL scandal."

Turning to India's neighbours, Swamy said the dispute with China was only related to to the demarcation of the Line of Actual Control while the dispute with Pakistan was about its claim on Kashmir.

"We are not ready to compromise an inch of Kashmir and the only dialogue with Pakistan on this must be focused on that part of the state that is under its unlawful occupation," he said.

Replying a question on the promise of a plebiscite in Kashmir India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, he said: "There was no cabinet decision on a plebiscite during Nehru's time and whatever he said is not binding on India."
