Congress assures stability, BJP predicts snap poll
New Delhi: A day after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh expressed confidence that his government will complete full five years, the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday predicted mid-term polls.
Calling the UPA government "unstable", BJP spokesman Balbir Punj said: "This government has lost the mandate to rule. Its numbers in the Lok Sabha are suspect. Predict mid-term polls."
He further underlined political instability in the country, saying a number of parties are assessing the situation.
Congress, however, assured completing full-term in office. According to Congress spokesperson Sandeep Dikshit, "the government will complete full tenure...Mulayam Singhji may have his own view. Like the PM said, the elections will happen in time."
Congress leader Rashid Alvi has assured the government is stable and polls will be held in time.
Notably, Samajwadi party`s love-hate relationship with the Congress could snap sooner than later. The Congress has become dependent on the SP and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in the Lok Sabha following withdrawal of the DMK and the Trinamool Congress from the United Progressive Alliance (UPA).
Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav has told his party workers that he had “inside information” that the Lok Sabha Elections will be held in November.
