"The only solution is to hold early general elections in the country," BJP veteran LK Advani said after meeting President Pranab Mukherjee.
A BJP team led by LK Advani along with Sushma Swaraj and Rajnath Singh met the President on Friday afternoon to express their concerns on the current economic crisis.
They have submitted a memorandum to the President that said, "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 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 said.
Earlier in the day, there was a heavy exchange of fierce words between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley in the Parliament.
Advani also said that the party was "hurt" by the PM's behaviour in the Parliament.
