Kolkata, Feb 5 (UNI) Keeping in mind the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, former BJP president Venkaiah Naidu today said the party would organise a nationwide ''Sankalp Yatra'' to highlight the 'failures' of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre.

The two-month long ''Sankalp Yatra'' will be led by party's prime ministerial candidate L K Advani, who will address a public meeting at the first such Yatra at Jabalpur tomorrow.

''The country is passing through a phase of instability and confusing politics because of Congress misrule and the people are unhappy with the functioning of the government. They want a change of guard,'' Mr Naidu told newspersons here.

He said the UPA's position at the Centre was ''directionless and helpless'' as it was not able to take major decisions because of opposition from its alliance partners.

''The Congress does not know how to run the coalition government and its alliance partners like the BSP, SP, NCP and PMK are maintaining distances from the government,'' he observed.

Asked to comment on Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackery's remarks against the Hindi-speaking people, Mr Naidu said the BJP had already condemned it.
