ALLAHABAD: In a two-pronged attack with an eye on the Uttar Pradesh elections next year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hit out at the ruling Samajwadi Party accusing it of practising casteism, communalism, nepotism and hooliganism while SP and BSP indulge in corruption in power alternatively.

Addressing a public meeting after the two-day National Executive session of the BJP, he also made a veiled attack on the Congress referring to corruption in purchase of helicopter, aircraft, guns and cooking gas subsidy.

However, his firepower was directed for most part against the Samajwadi Party.      Appealing to the people for an opportunity to rule the state, he invoked the greatness of rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati and said the land of Prayag will mark a new beginning by taking to development.

"For this, arrogance , casteism, poison of communalism, corruption, nepotism will have to be sacrificed in the holy fire (yagya) to start the new journey of development," Modi said to the cheers of the party cadre and admirers who repeatedly shouted 'Modi, Modi, Modi'.

Not sparing the BSP, the other major player in the state, the Prime Minister said Mayawati and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav take turns to accuse each other's government of indulging in corruption but take no action when each one comes to power. "This is their jugalbandi (duet)," he said.
