Mulayam's remark on Maya against democracy : L K Advani

BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate L K Advani on Friday expressed surprise at Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav's remark that he would support anybody who dismisses Mayawati Government in Uttar Pradesh. The BJP leader further said that the Constitution does not allow centre to take such a step. 

 

Advani told mediapersons, "What can I say? I am surprised that such a public statement has come (from Yadav). Constitution does not give right to any Central government to dismiss a democratically elected state government. It has a certain dignity.”

 

Advani commented "Mulayam's comments about Mayawati are against democracy." 

 

Advani also expressed confidence that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) was way ahead of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance(UPA) as per the latest trends available till date. 

 

"I can say that as of now, the BJP will emerge as the single largest party and would be much ahead of Congress," he said. 

 

Advani also said, "Our alliance too will be ahead of UPA. Thanks to the hard work of our party workers, Chief Ministers and leaders, the situation today is very much in our favour, which even I did not anticipate."

 

The BJP leader further added that the NDA lost the 2004 Lok Sabha elections mainly due to overconfidence however this time the party has ensured that there is no such feeling. 

 

When requested to give comment on the efforts made by the Congress to woo Janata Dal (JD-U) chief Nitish Kumar, Advani said "Nitishji himself has clarified on this. All speculation on this issue are baseless and endless. There is no need to speculate on all this."
