‘Not opposition, UPA itself raised snap poll issue

Last Updated: Sunday, March 18, 2012 - 18:23

Hyderabad: Accusing the UPA government of
failing on all fronts, BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday said
the talk of mid-term polls has been raised by the ruling
combination itself and not by the opposition.

"This (UPA) government is losing confidence of the
nation, certainly the Opposition and of course the allies
too...because the leadership has too many power centres. The
Congress party has violated the coalition `dharma` while
breaking the trust of allies," the former BJP president told
reporters here.

Claiming that all was not well with the UPA government,
Venkaiah said the recent developments have shown that this
government has failed on all fronts and pointed out that a
minister from Uttarakhand had put down his papers, while
Railway Minister`s (Dinesh Trivedi) resignation is being
sought.

"The ruling party members create disturbance in
Parliament and the foundation of this government is being
shaken brick by brick. The talk of mid-term poll has not come
from the opposition but the ruling combination itself," he
said, adding that the saffron party was not seeking the snap
polls though it was ready to face it.

The BJP leader also termed the Union Budget as "anti-poor,
inflationary and anti-farmer which will only fuel price rise
further".
