Union agriculture minister and NCP chief Sharad Pawar has said the UPA government would complete its full term as it has the people's mandate even as the activities of BJP and its allies hint at them being in a "hurry" for Parliamentary elections.

"UPA government would complete its full term and there are no chances of it falling. The BJP and its allies are painting a picture that the Parliamentary polls will be held soon. Perhaps, they want to give a boost to their party men who are dispirited," Pawar told reporters here Sunday night after returning from Pusad in eastern Maharashtra.

Replying to a query, Pawar said his party NCP's alliance with Congress for the local body elections would be better for both the parties.

"However, respective local bodies of NCP are given the mandate to decide on any alliance," Pawar added.
