Calling the a "minority government" and ruling out the possibility of a Third Front government, the today claimed that the (NDA) would come to power after the 2014 elections.

"Till the time the Left enjoyed power in some states, the possibility of Third Front government did exist. But now, we feel there is no possibility of a Third Front. We totally reject it," party general secretary and newly-appointed in-charge of Maharashtra BJP, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, said at a press conference here.

Criticising the Congress-led UPA government for "corruption and economic crisis", he said, "India has emerged as a failure before the world, be it on foreign policy or diplomatic relations."

"UPA-II is in its last leg. Cracks are developing within the UPA. Their allies like and TMC have withdrawn support. They are no longer a government with 272 clean majority. They are minority government," Rudy claimed.

"We (NDA) will win more than 300 seats in the next general elections. On the strength of our young leadership, we will also form the government in Maharashtra," he said.

Referring to the reported rift between chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Rudy alleged, "The PM had never been at the helm of affairs. There have always been differences between 10 Janpath and 7 Race Course Road. As a reason, UPA has never been effective in their 4-year term."

Rudy also alleged that Singh used JPC to wriggle out of the 2G spectrum scam case and is "silent" on sensitive issues like the infiltration of Bangladeshis, threat from Pakistan and Chinese incursion and killing of Indian national Sarabjit Singh in Pakistan's Kot Lakhpat jail by other inmates.
