Accusing the UPA of being steeped in corruption, BJP in Uttarakhand today said dislodging the Congress from power in 2014 General elections is on top of the party's agenda.

"After four years of UPA-II in power there is not even an iota of doubt left in people's mind that corruption has flourished like never before under the Congress-led alliance.

Eliminating the Congress to rid people of a corrupt regime in 2014 Lok Sabha polls is our only goal for now," BJP MP and in-charge of party affairs in Uttarakhand Radha Mohan Singh told reporters here.

Singh, who is on his maiden visit to the state after being made in-charge of the party for Uttarakhand, said the scenario in the hill state where Congress is in power is not very different from the Centre.

"The one-and-a-half-year old Congress government in Uttarakhand has left people disappointed. The recent civic body poll verdict in the state is also an indication that people are fed up with the Congress and looking at BJP as a strong and viable alternative," Singh said.

He said the party will get into election mode and appoint state convenors and in-charges for Lok Sabha polls after the BJP national executive to be held in Goa on June 8-9.

"We will go to people, bring them out on the streets and motivate them to wipe out the Congress in 2014 General elections," he said.

Alleging that Congress had failed to deliver, the BJP MP from East Champaran said the economist Prime Minister had promised to rein in prices within 100 days of taking over but inflation continues to be on the rise adding to the woes of the common man.

"In the four years of UPA-II six of Congress allies including TMC, TRC and DMK have deserted the alliance. It will be a surprise even for the Congress if it wins more than six Lok Sabha seats in Andhra Pradesh from where Congress had the maximum 33 MPs," he said.

"Huge back-to-back scams like Adarsh Housing Society scam, Commonwealth Games scam, 2G spectrum scam, coalblock allocation scam have exposed the appalling levels of corruption in UPA. Even the Supreme Court has pulled up the government for keeping the country in the dark about Indian black money stashed abroad," Singh said.

"Weak leadership and unbridled corruption have dealt a blow to the country's image abroad and people will not spare the party (Congress) responsible for all this in the next general elections," he said.
