india Updated: Jul 22, 2008 21:01 IST

BJP on Tuesday gave a call to oust Congress-led UPA government following the alleged attempts of bribing MPs for abstaining them from the Lok Sabha during the confidence motion on the issue of nuclear deal.

"It was most shameful and condemnable incident for the democracy of the country," Madhya Pradesh BJP Vice President Vijendra Singh Sisodia told reporters.

The party has also decided to burn effigies of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi as part of the nationwide campaign announced by the party from on Tuesday.

The BJP workers later set afire the effigies of two leaders at the Roshanpura Square in Bhopal in protest against the attempts to bribe its MPs for ensuring that they remained absent during the trust vote.
