New Delhi, 29th March: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday expressed his confidence that government will complete full five years, but the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday expecting mid-term polls.
Congress, however, assured completing full-term in office. According to Congress spokesperson Sandeep Dikshit, “the government will complete full tenure… Mulayam Singh ji may have his view. Like the PM said, the elections will happen in time.”
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 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 said his party workers that he had “inside information” that the Lok Sabha Elections will be held in November.
