Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj today claimed the UPA government will not be able to survive beyond the winter session of Parliament as it has been reduced to a minority and the country is heading towards early polls.
"The Congress-led UPA Government will not be able to survive in the winter session of Parliament as it is already reduced to a minority (after withdrawal of TMC support) and has no right to take any major decisions," she said.
Swaraj was addressing `Yuva Sankalp' bike rally organised by BJYM, BJP's youth wing, as part of year-long celebrations of 150th birth anniversary of Swami
Launching a scathing attack on the Manmohan Singh government, the Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha said it is involved in
"triloki corruption" (corruption committed on earth, sky and inside the earth).
"CWG scam was committed on earth, spectrum (2G) in sky and coal inside the earth. Therefore, I describe this government as the one which has committed corruption in trilok (three worlds)."
The BJP leader alleged that in order to divert people's attention from all these scams, the government suddenly took the decision to permit FDI in multi-brand retail and put a cap on domestic LPG cylinders.
The UPA was hoping to get BJP's support on the issue of FDI but the main opposition party will not do so under any circumstances, she said. "We will not support the government on the issue of FDI in retail."
She claimed the country is heading towards mid-term polls and parties like Samajwadi Party, BSP and
DMK, all UPA allies, will not support the government in Parliament on the issue of
FDI. Therefore, it would not be able to survive on the floor of the House.
"This government has lost all its credibility after a rash of scams," Swaraj charged and gave the call "Congress
Hatao, Desh Bachao" (remove Congress and save the country.)
She praised the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh for launching various welfare schemes in the state.
