CHANDIGARH, April 7 � BSP supremo Mayawati today did not rule out the possibility of an early general election, but maintained that her party would continue to provide outside support to the UPA government despite its �anti-people� policies for keeping the communal forces at bay, reports PTI.
�Whether the polls in the country are held before or as per schedule, the BSP is ready. Our party is putting all effort in this (preparing for the polls),� she told reporters at a press conference here.
When pressed about the possibility of snap polls despite Finance Minister P Chidambaram ruling it out yesterday, Mayawati said, �I can�t say anything now.�
She, however, hurriedly added, �jo haalat chal rahein hein lag rahan hein ki samay say pehle wae ho sakte hein (as the situation is right now, it seems these (polls) can be held before schedule also).�
Despite anti-people policies of the Congress-led UPA, she said, her party was giving outside support to keep the �communal forces� at bay.
�Our party is not satisfied with their (Centre�s) policies,� she said, adding that these policies were affecting farmers, employees, poor people and other sections of society.
