Bhopal: Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj has claimed that the UPA government will not be able to survive beyond the Winter Session of Parliament.

"The Congress-led UPA government will not be able to survive the Winter Session of Parliament as it is already reduced to a minority (after withdrawal of TMC support) and has no right to take any major decisions," she said. Ms Swaraj also said that the country is heading towards early polls.

The BJP leader was addressing 'Yuva Sankalp' bike rally organised by the BJP's youth wing, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, as part of year-long celebrations to mark 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekanand.

Launching a scathing attack on the Manmohan Singh government, the Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha said it is involved in "triloki corruption" (corruption committed on earth, sky and inside the earth).

"CWG scam was committed on earth, spectrum (2G) in sky and coal inside the earth. Therefore, I describe this government as the one which has committed corruption in trilok (three worlds)," she said.

Ms Swaraj alleged that in order to divert people's attention from all these scams, the government suddenly took the decision to permit Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail and put a cap on domestic LPG cylinders.

The UPA was hoping to get BJP's support on the issue of FDI but the main Opposition party will not do so under any circumstances, she said.

She claimed the country is heading towards mid-term polls and parties like Samajwadi Party, BSP and DMK, all UPA allies, will not support the government in Parliament on the issue of FDI.

"This government has lost all its credibility after a rash of scams," Ms Swaraj charged and gave the call "Congress hatao, desh bachao" (remove Congress and save the country.)

She praised the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh for launching various welfare schemes in the state.
