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.
