Four allies want to leave UPA: BJP
Bareilly: BJP on Monday claimed that failure of the Congress in following coalition dharma had antagonised four key UPA allies and this could lead to mid-term polls as they want to break ties with the ruling party.
"UPA is on the brink of a collapse as a large number of Congress allies want to break off. Congress has not been able to follow coalition dharma and this has made the allies unhappy," BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told reporters here.
He claimed four of the UPA allies, who were earlier part of the NDA, were in touch with the BJP.
"These four parties are on deputation in the UPA. They did not have a good experience with Congress and were keen to part ways with it and are in touch with the NDA," he claimed.
Naqvi, however, refused to name the parties.
With this development there are clear signs that the country might have mid-term polls, Naqvi said, adding that Lok Sabha elections could be held along with the states where Assembly polls are due in 2013.
