BJP's ‘communal trick’ worked during the Lok Sabha polls but it failed to check corruption and prices of essential commodities after coming to power which also contributed to its defeat in the by-polls, he told reporters here.

"Now bad days have started for those (BJP) who made the promise of 'acche din' during the Lok Sabha polls," the SP spokesman said.

Shivpal charged BJP with whipping up communal passions in the state to derive political mileage.

Their ‘communal trick’ worked during the Lok Sabha polls but this time issues like 'Love Jihad' backfired for the party, he said.

The outcome of the just-concluded by-polls showed that SP had a strong base in the state, Shivpal said.
