Over come internal problems before dreaming of Centre: Khurshid to NDA

Farrukhabad (UP): Claiming divisions among NDA allies over choice of PM candidate, Union Minister Salman Khurshid today said the BJP-led alliance should first overcome its internal problems before dreaming of coming to power at the Centre.

"As soon as there is the talk about (Gujarat Chief Minister) Narendra Modi (as NDA's PM candidate), Janata Dal (United) starts issuing threats of parting ways and when it (JDU) is in, Modi is out," Khurshid told reporters at his parliamentary constituency.

Reacting to Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav's remarks about forming a Third Front, Khurshid said that two-three people coming together and dreaming about it would not make it a reality and bring it to power.

Asked about Mulayam's praise to BJP leader L K Advani, the External Affairs Minister said it was as per the Indian culture where elders are given proper respect.

Khurshid said the Congress-led government at the Centre has done a lot of good work in past four years based on which it would go into the polls and return to power.
