Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav on Sunday said that policies of Congress-led Central government have failed both at the national and international levels and alleged that the party does not follow any policy and its sole aim is gaining power.

"Countries which had gained freedom with India are far ahead of us in the field of development.. inflation has gone up and corruption has broken all records (in India). Besides, China has taken over large area of our land... all this is the result of wavering policies," Yadav said during a programme of the advocates cell of his party.

"For resolving differences, besides strong resolve, diplomacy is also required... but the policies of our central government, both at the national and international level, have been a failure," he said, adding, "Actually Congress does not follow policy, its aim is only to gain power."

Yadav, whose Samajawadi Party is giving outside support to the UPA government, said the Central government has failed to protect the borders, control inflation and corruption.

"Because of wavering foreign policy, it is deprived of friends even in its neighbourhood," he said. Attacking BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Yadav said that he should desist from giving wrong statements.
