New Delhi: Launching a scathing attack on the UPA government at the Centre, the main opposition party, the BJP, on Thursday said that it is ready for a mid-term poll. Reacting at the UPA’s fiasco after the Rail Budget which was presented in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said that her party is ready to face elections if the UPA government is toppled in the mid-way.

Senior party leader and former BJP president Venkaiah Naidu said that the UPA had betrayed the people. He further added, “People are amused to see the mess in UPA especially in decision making.”

Naidu also asserted that the BJP was ready for the mid-term elections, claiming that the UPA had numbers "just on papers".

“The Prime Minister says that his party has sufficient numbers. We think the numbers are there on papers," said Naidu. He asked the government, “Either you govern or relinquish the power. Just don’t create a mess in the name of running a government.”

He said, "The Congress party has breached the canons of coalition politics. The foundation of the UPA coalition was falling brick by brick. There is no governance."

Taking a dig at Mamata’s letter to the Prime Minister asking him to sack the Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi, Sushma Swaraj said, “This is a very unusual and unprecedented situation. During Budget Session, an ally of the UPA government is asking to sack a Union Minister.”
