New Delhi:  Seeing an opportunity to corner the UPA government after the exit of Trinamool Congress, BJP will demand a special session of Parliament to discuss the issue of FDI in retail even though its key ally JD-U is not in favour.

Senior BJP leader L K Advani said that the government will not last its full term till 2014 if Trinamool Congress goes ahead with its decision to exit the UPA.

Advani said his party would ask for a special session to discuss this issue and accused the government of committing a "breach of trust" of Parliament by going ahead with its decision on FDI in retail.

The party, however, said it will consult its allies of NDA after tomorrow's nationwide agitation against FDI in retail and diesel price hike before firming up its position.

"Tuesday's development has destabilised the present government. It is only a matter of time that it will collapse. The present government cannot last its full term till 2014. Anything can happen before that," Advani said.

He said "we would request for convening of a special session of Parliament. We will make a formal request to the President for the special session after the September 20 nationwide bandh called by us."
