[ZESTCaste] No pact between Congress, BSP: Digvijay Singh

No pact between Congress, BSP: Digvijay Singh

LUCKNOW: Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Thursday said the support
extended by the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) to the central government
over the cut motions in the Lok Sabha should not be viewed as a tacit
pact between the two parties.

"We are thankful to (Uttar Pradesh chief minister) Mayawati, whose
party supported us on the cut motions in parliament. But it should not
be linked with any kind of secret pact," Singh told reporters here.

The BSP supported the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance against
the opposition-sponsored cut motions Tuesday.

"There is no pact between Congress and BSP. We want to make it clear
that the Congress would continue its struggle against the BSP over its
anti-people policies like misusing public money to erect statues and
memorials," he added.

Singh said that by supporting the Congress government, Mayawati had
strengthened the secular forces. "It helped in keeping the communal
forces at bay from attaining power at the centre."

Replying to a question related to soaring prices, Singh said that
price rise was not a political issue and all political parties must
come together to devise strategies to contain it.
