All the decisions taken by the UPA government are "unconstitutional and illegal" and should be rolled back as it has lost its "credibility and majority" both among the people and in the Parliament, BJP claimed on Wednesday.
"The country is going through a serious political crisis and instability, the government which is scam tainted and deep into corruption has lost its credibility and majority among the people and in the Parliament," BJP national vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said while talking to the reporters in Lucknow.
He said after Trinamool Congress' decision to withdraw support, the government was making efforts to save its throne by adopting various tactics.
"This government has completely lost faith of the people and facing their angst. It is on the dollar dialysis," he alleged.
In reply to a question Naqvi said general elections could take place in the country any time.
"Mid term polls would definitely take place and not only this there will be complete root out of Congress," he said.
Naqvi alleged that there was huge resentment in the country on the manner in which the government was adamant to sell economic and public interests in the "hands of foreign market."
"This government has lost its credibility, its a minority government and whatever decisions, whether its FDI in retail, it has taken after this or before, all are unconstitutional, illegal and should be rolled back," he said.
The BJP leader accused the government of cheating and making false statements on the issue of FDI in retail.
"The government in the Parliament said that any decision will be taken only after taking all political parties and state into confidence, but once the session was over in a bid to please its foreign masters it secretly took the decision," he alleged.
Naqvi said now the government says that it's upto the state governments whether they want to implement it or not.
"Secondly the government says that multinationals will do 30% procurement and rest from foreign countries. It is a cheating in itself. Such type of decisions are taken as per the guidelines and agreements of the WTO," he claimed.
He alleged it was the biggest fraud with the economy of the country and the people.
"Tomorrow BJP is supporting and participating in nation wide bandh and it would reflect on the roads aggressively and effectively," he said.
The BJP leader said all prominent leaders of the party, including national president Nitin Gadkari, Sushma Swaraj and Rajnath Singh would lead the agitation at different places.
He said that the national executive and national council meeting of the party would be held at Faridabad in Haryana between September 26 to September 28.
"During the meeting detailed discussions will be held on possible Lok Sabha polls and forthcoming assembly elections. Besides, the strategy to take forward the agitation will be finalised," he said.
Naqvi said regarding LPG the government has given a statement on Wednesday that the states where the party was in the power would increase the number of cylinders on the basis of subsidy.
He alleged that it seems that they want to create a clash between the Centre and the states.
The BJP leader said that the government should have rolled back its decision on LPG, diesel and petrol.
"In the last six years petrol rates were hiked 51 times, diesel 42 times and LPG a dozen times. After this they say that oil companies were suffering losses...this loss is not due to subsidy, but corruption," he alleged.
