New Delhi, Jan 22 (UNI) The BJP today said the Lok Sabha elections seemed imminent in 2008 as the ''frayed'' UPA-Left relationship had deteriorated in the recent past.

Addressing a function here, senior BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the party had been gathering information about the performance and the functioning of the Congress-led governments in many states of the country.

He said the report had been prepared in view of polls in several states and the ''imminent'' Lok Sabha elections this year.

''The report has revealed some startling facts,'' he said.

Mr Naqvi claimed that 93 per cent of the people in the Congress ruled states were ''unhappy'' with the functioning of the government and wanted a change of guard.

The BJP leader exuded confidence that his party would return to power in the state elections and the Lok Sabha polls as well.

''The BJP will not only come to power in Delhi and other states but at the Centre as well,'' he said.

In 2007, Mr Naqvi said elections were held in eight states and out of these, the BJP emerged winner in seven. ''The important thing is that the Congress was defeated in all the elections.'' He said the three-day crucial BJP executive meeting would be held here from January 27.

Mr Naqvi said the elections to the Lok Sabha and other states would be high on the agenda of the meet along with other issues.

The BJP leader said the country was passing through a phase of ''instability and confusing politics because of the Congress misrule'' and the people were clamouring for a change.
