The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister claimed that the UPA will suffer a heavy defeat in the next Lok Sabha election due to widespread dissatisfaction among the electorate.
He,however,made it clear that his party will continue to support the UPA government to keep communal forces at bay even as he asserted that we are fully prepared for the elections,whenever they take place.
On Mulayams statement that the election could be held as early as November,he said the political developments and media reports hint at such a possibility. Mulayam had said,Congress used to take support by threatening. I supported the UPA government in bad times but Congress has put CBI after me.
Reacting to BJPs charge that the SP was supporting the UPA because it feared CBI action against some of its top leaders,Akhilesh evaded a direct reply but said it is a fact that anybody who does not act according to the wishes of the Congress party,faces persecution through CBI.
