Rampur: Hinting at early Lok Sabha elections, BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday said the main contest in the battle would be between the BJP-led NDA and the Congress-led UPA.

The country could be headed for early Parliamentary polls in the wake of "political uncertainty and misgovernance of the UPA-II", he told reporters here.

"Lok Sabha polls may be held along with the upcoming Assembly elections in several states," Naqvi said.

He said the main contest in the Lok Sabha elections would be between the NDA and the UPA.

"There is only a remote possibility of the emergence of any other front," the BJP leader said. In reply to a question on whether President Pratibha Patil should be given another term, Naqvi said the BJP was opposed to the idea.

"The country's highest constitutional post should not be treated at par with village heads who are elected twice, thrice or even more," he said.
