NEW DELHI: Senior BJP leader L K Advani today asked partymen to gear up for early polls, contenting that the UPA government is on a “suicidal path” and nothing could be said about its future.
“The UPA government is on a suicidal path. Never has such a situation arisen since Independence. The government is full of corruption and does not deserve to be in office… We must gear up as you never know what is in the offing,” a senior BJP leader said, quoting Advani.
Advani was delivering the valedictory address to party office bearers at the BJP National Executive here.
He said the government is “dysfunctional” and the people were “fed-up” with it.
Advani, who is all set to take out a yatra for good governance and clean politics from October 11, insisted that the party would strive to create awareness among the people about corruption and price rise.
In a hard-hitting speech, Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said people were looking up to the BJP and the party must prove its worth.
The conclave discussed the strategy for the forthcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Manipur and Punjab.
A resolution on the current political situation was passed at the two-day meet which also discussed the economic scenario in the country.
Swaraj told party cadres that elections could not be won just because the UPA is in disarray.
“People are looking at us and we must prove ourselves,” she said and asked the party workers to be prepared and reach out to people at the grassroots. -PTI
