Chandigarh: Claiming that the Congress led
UPA government has become "unstable" over Union Carbide chief
Warren Anderson issue, Indian National Lok Dal (INLD)
President Om Prakash Chautala today said that he foresees
possibility of a mid-term Lok Sabha polls.

"The Central government has become unstable over Warren
Anderson issue (providing him safe passage)," Chautala said
and called on his party workers to be ready to face the
"imminent polls".

"In this scenario, elections can be announced at any
stage," he claimed in a statement here.

Like its erstwhile ally the BJP, Chautala`s party also
sought to exploit the issue of judicial verdict into the
Bhopal gas tragedy.

"...the role played by the then Chief Minister Arjun
Singh allowing Warren Anderson to flee from the state after
the incident, in which thousands of people were killed, has
shocked the people of the nation. It has also exposed the
ugly face of the Congress, against whom there is growing anger
among the masses," he claimed.
