"BJP has named Modi as its prime ministerial candidate under the pressure of corporate sector. These days, corporate culture is the order of the day in BJP," Yadav alleged.
    
Hinting at growing polarization within the saffron party, Yadav said, "BJP has resorted to its previous ideology and is no longer following the ideology of ex-prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and senior leader LK Advani."
    
Advani, who had stubbornly opposed Modi's anointment, seems to have reconciled himself to the decision as he has now praised the Gujarat Chief Minister for carrying out ‘developmental work’ in his home state, Yadav said.
    
"India is a country of different languages and cultures. Only secular governments can be formed here. After the general elections, neither UPA nor BJP would be able to come to power. A new front would form the government at the Centre," he said.
    
He said JD-U had taken the call to sever its close to two-decade old alliance with BJP following ‘ongoing developments’ in the saffron party. "BJP has now become a party of different voices," he alleged.

JD-U broke its 17-year-old alliance with BJP owing to the differences, which surfaced after the saffron party named Modi as its campaign chief for 2014 polls.
