Bangalore, Aug 22: India has been witnessing a revolution with India Against Corruption movement led by 74-year-old Gandhian Crusader, Anna Hazare. However, the political parties seem to have started taking political advantage as the UPA government has been cornered with Anna's movement. The main opposition party, BJP has demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Many opinionated that BJP should ask its all MPs to step down in order to create pressure on the government for a fresh election.

52-year-old Dalpat B Mehta, a Chartered Accountant in Mumbai, stated that senior BJP leaders such as LK Advani should move forward asking its own MPs to resign to pave the way for early elections.

"Opposition Leader Shri Advaniji asked that Prime Minister should resign as he has lost the faith & support of public. Yes it is 100% correct but at the same time will someone ask Advaniji and/or BJP leadership to ask their all MPs to resign first to set the precedent and pave the way for early elections and than ask PM to resign," stated Mehta.

Continuing his statement, Mehta also claimed, "If there is no opposition in Parliament, how Parliament will function.. Do the BJP has this much courage to ask his MPs to resign?"

Here it can be recalled that recently Advani demanded that PM, Manmohan Singh should step down from his post as he (PM) has lost confidence of the people. Taking on the government, he (Advani) alleged that the ruling alliance is steeped in corruption.

Pointing at surging inflation, the senior BJP leader also said, "This government is totally corrupt. The Prime Minister has a great reputation of being an economist. But the common man is shocked to find that ever since this government has come to power, prices have been going up and up."

Citing the present political scenario, here's a question for the BJP - will the main opposition party sacrifice for a better corruption-free India?
