Former BJP ideologue KN Govindacharya today said there is a sort of political stagnation in the country and the BJP has failed in the Opposition's role.
"Today Opposition has lost its goodwill to the extent that instead of morality, it is trying to grab power through baseless logic and tactics," he alleged while talking to the reporters here.
Alleging immoral alliance between the government and the Opposition, Govindacharya said that there was a sort of "political stagnation" in the country and to break it a new political initiative was needed.
Referring to Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev's campaign against corruption, he said public anger was apparent in both the agitations, but the leadership failed to give it a shape and expansion.
Govindacharya said that Hazare's campaign was turning out to be a new edition of Janata Dal (U) and Baba Ramdev's campaign was turning into a new edition of BJP.
Govindacharya said that to break this political stagnation all agitational groups should leave their pre-perceived notions and come on one platform.
To achieve the target a meeting of the leaders of agitational groups would be held during Navratra in Delhi where necessary initiative would be taken after deliberations.
He said that before this demonstration would be held demanding direct allocation of seven per cent of the union budget directly to gram panchayats in a bid to make Panchayati Raj system more effective.
Referring to coal block allotment, Govindacharya said that Manmohan Singh government has turned out to be the "most corrupt" government till date.
Demanding immediate cancellation of coal block allotments, he said that along with the corrupt government, industrialists should also be exposed.
