The alliance between Samajwadi Party and Congress is a “thag bandhan” (coalition of cheats), Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today. Addressing an election meeting in Dhanghta, he attacked SP and BSP, alleging that “many corrupt leaders” are present in both the parties. SP and Congress formed the alliance about a month back, just ahead of the Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. “There is a wave in favour of the BJP and it will make its government after elections,” he said.
