Bharatiya Janata Party veteran Lal Krishna Advani on Friday said the only way to end the present situation of uncertainty in the country and tackle the economic crisis effectively is to hold Lok Sabha elections in 2013.

“If people are given a fresh opportunity to select a new government, it would be in the best interest of the country,” Advani told media persons in New Delhi

“Country has never seen such a government which is responsible for the present situation. I advised the President during meeting to allow early Lok Sabha poll to get rid the crisis,” he added 

Advani, who led a delegation to meet President Pranab following Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s statement in Parliament on the present economic scenario, held the Congress-led UPA II government responsible for the deteriorating condition of the Indian economy.

Advani further said that the BJP was hurt by the Prime Minister’s behaviour in the Rajya Sabha.

"We are hurt by the Prime Minister’s attitude in Rajya Sabha and have also mentioned this to the President," he added.

The BJP also submitted a memorandum to President Mukherjee in which it mentioned, “The country can ill afford at this moment of crisis a government which is paralysed, a Prime Minister who never speaks, a Finance Minister who wrongly blames his immediate predecessor -- who cannot defend himself -- a supreme leader who does not care about where money will come from and a bureaucracy that is frozen and unable to act.”

"We advise you to end the current uncertainty by advising this government to seek a fresh mandate at the earliest and not later than state elections due in the next three months,” the memorandum added.
