June 21, 2008 17:46 IST
The Bharatiya Janata Party expects the next parliament election to be held by November as the 'fall of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government is imminent," senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu said on Saturday.
Naidu claimed that the UPA government would fall in August and elections would be held in November.
Referring to the inflationary trend in the country, Naidu said the Centre could not blame the inflation as global phenomena and it was the 'creation of the Centre's wrong economic priorities'.
On the India-United States nuclear agreement, Naidu said the BJP would oppose any deal that would 'harm the nation's interest'.
"The BJP will not allow any deal to materialise if it hurts the country's interest," he said. In this regard, Naidu said the BJP was with the Left parties in opposing the Indo-US nuclear deal.
