New Delhi, Aug 5: Veteran leader of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), LK Advani claimed that a third font without the support of Congress or BJP can not form the government in India and if such occasion arrives, then the government can not last long.
Mr Advani, in his blog, stated, "The shape which national polity has acquired in the past two and a half decades makes it practically impossible for any government to be formed in New Delhi which does not have the support either of the Congress or of the BJP."
Showing instances from the history of India, Mr Advani stressed, "A non-Congress, non-BJP Prime Minister heading a government supported by one of these two principal parties is, however, feasible. This has happened in the past also."
"But, as the Prime Ministership of Ch Charan Singh, Chandrashekharji, Deve Gowdaji and Inder Kumar ji Gujral (all supported by Congress) as also of Vishwanath Pratap Singhji (supported by BJP) have shown, such governments have never lasted long," added Mr Advani.
Mr Advani also asserted that a stabilised central government can only be formed if the Prime Minister is either from Congress or BJP.
However, Mr Advani did not leave the chance to slam UPA government and assured the people of the nation by saying that BJP along with other allies will definitely defeat UPA in the upcoming Lok Sabha election in 2014.
"...Unfortunately, the two Governments since 2004, UPA I and UPA II have both been so badly mismanaged that the current state of anxiety in the ruling establishment is quite understandable," said Advani and also added, "It would not at all be surprising if the next Lok Sabha elections yield a result which for the Congress may prove the worst in its history since 1952."
