Bangalore, Oct 12 (UNI) Janata Dal (United) President Sharad Yadav today said fall of United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government at the Centre was imminent due to the Indo-US Nuclear deal imbroglio.
Talking to newsmen after calling on Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur at Raj Bhavan here, he said, "Whether the Indo-US nuclear agreement is implemented or not, the UPA government will not survive for long." He said that during discussion with the Governor he discussed about increase in farmers committing suicide in North Karnataka, about essential commodities supplied through Public Distribution System (PDS) not reaching people below poverty line, relief and rehabilitation of people affected in recent floods and acquisition of farm land for setting up of Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Karnataka.
He alleged that in the name of SEZs 'land sharks' were acquiring land for doing real estate business. "I urged the Governor to take suitable action on the above issues," he added.
Replying to a question, he however said that he did not discuss about present political situation in Karnataka.
Mr Yadav arrived in Karnataka to pay his last respects to former Chief Minister S R Bommai, whose mortal remains was cremated near Hubli in the afternoon.
