`Possibility of midterm poll as remote as that`

Congress said the possibility of early Lok Sabha polls is "as remote as that" and told Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav that there was no point creating an air of uncertainity.



New Delhi: Congress on Friday said the
possibility of early Lok Sabha polls is "as remote as that"
and told Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav that there
was no point creating an air of uncertainity or instability
"where none exists".

"There is obviously no guarantee that the sky may not
fall on our heads or that Yeddyurappa will stop demanding the
Chief Minister`s chair. But the possibility of mid-term polls
is as remote as that", party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told
reporters here.

Asked to comment on Yadav`s statement in Lucknow earlier
in the day that there is "no guarantee" when the Lok Sabha
elections might take place, Singhvi said there is "no point
creating an air of uncertainity or instability where none
exists".

SP had rescued the UPA-I government in Parliament during
crucial vote of confidence in 2008 and also when
opposition-sponsored amendments to the President`s address to
Parliament were rejected recently.
