Indirectly ruling out the possibility of formation of a third front after the Lok Sabha elections,BJP senior leader L K Advani today that there would be a bipolar contest in the Lok Sabha elections and the next government at the Centre would be led by either the BJP or the Congress.
Talking to reporters after delivering speech his inaugural address at the state executive committee meeting of the BJP in Chitrakoot,Advani also said that Lok Sabha elections were possible in 2013. The Congress-led UPA government could get the elections held this year because Assembly elections are also scheduled in some Congress-ruled states.
Advani said that the Lok Sabha elections held in 1977 after the Emergency were the most crucial elections in the history of country after independence and all opposition parties had united to remove the Congress from power. Advani said there was need to contest the next Lok Sabha election the same way to remove the Congress-led UPA from power.
In his speech,Advani said that UP was an important state for BJP; the party will have to win maximum seats in UP in the Lok Sabha elections to get power at the Centre.
Advani said he had led six successful yatras that strengthened the BJP. His last two yatras received the best response and that was a good indication for the party ahead of Lok Sanha elections.
Earlier,delivering the presidential address,party BJP president Laxmikant Bajpai termed the Lok Sabha elections a maha samar (great battle) and assured Advani that the party will win maximum seats in UP and help in forming the next government.
Bajpai said,Lord Ram had started his struggle against injustice from Chitrakoot and BJP workers have assembled here to take a pledge to remove the UPA government that is a symbol of injustice and corruption, Bajpai said.
He said that Congress,SP and BSP,all are against Hindutva and nationalism. Both SP and BSP give shelter to those helping ISI in getting active in the state. The law and order has deteriorated and communal harmony disturbed in the SP rule,Bajpai said and praised the development model of Gujarat.
