Samajwadi Party (SP) president Mulayam Singh on Friday dismissed the “Narendra Modi factor” as media-driven and said that it would not be effective in Uttar Pradesh. “The Modi factor will neither work in Uttar Pradesh, nor in Bihar,” he said, adding that its ineffectiveness outside Gujarat was witnessed in the Karnataka Assembly polls.”

Why the Modi factor would not work in Uttar Pradesh, according to Mr. Singh, was due to the fact that “Uttar Pradesh has a distinct culture in which there is no discrimination.”

Even as he lashed out against the Gujarat Chief Minister, he attacked the Congress-led UPA government for bringing out the Food Security Ordinance in “haste.”

Accusing the Congress of playing the politics of votes as “was done in the case of MNREGA before the 2009 Lok Sabha poll,” Mr. Singh said the government should have waited for the Lok Sabha session and the Bill should have been passed after a House debate.

Predicting the Congress’s defeat in the 2014 Lok Sabha election “in the country and in Uttar Pradesh,” he reiterated that the Third Front would be formed after the election as “neither the Congress, nor the BJP will get majority.”

All parties including congress are presenting Mr.Modi as a nuclear bomb
that will cause heavy destruction,bloodbath on wide range to canvass
Muslims for votes,I believe that Mr Modi is inadequate candidate by all
angles for democracy,because of this sense of Déjàvu Muslims most
probably will not cast their franchise in favor of BJP in 2014 Lok
But Mr Mulayam even you failed in living no stone unturned to curb the
communal violence that took place more than 70 times over last two
years in UP,A wise man makes his own decisions,an ignorant man follows
public opinion,every voters will apply this proverb in 2014,and if we
voters cast our franchise honestly then the best party suited for the
country will hold power De Facto and De Jure.
Congress and BJP both are like dragon but difference is that first one
is thirsty and second one is hungry, if one sucks our blood, other
gobble our body up and we sandwich between two swords, so keep
exploiting us until we understand your double role.
