They have only one agenda: Arjun Singh

COIMBATORE, OCT. 11 . The only agenda of the Opposition parties is pulling down the Government, the Human Resource Development Minister, Arjun Singh, said here today.

Talking to presspersons, he said: ``They are constantly at it. What other agenda do they have?'' Though the Maharashtra elections would be ``tough,'' the Congress would do well. ``Surveys are surveys,'' he said, when asked about predictions that a hung assembly is on the cards.

On the reported statement by the Shiv Sena leader, Bal Thackeray, that the Petroleum Minister, Mani Shankar Aiyar, would not be allowed to enter Mumbai on the Savarkar issue, Mr. Singh wondered how such a declaration could be made or implemented. ``What will they do? Will they kill him,'' he asked.
