Expressing surprise at Mulayam Singh Yadav's comment that he would support anybody who dismisses the Mayawati Government in Uttar Pradesh, NDA prime ministerial candidate L K Advani on Friday said the Constitution does not allow the Centre to take such a step.

"What can I say? I am surprised that such a public statement has come (from Mulayam). The Constitution does not give the right to any Central Government to dismiss a democratically elected state Government. It has a certain dignity," Advani told reporters here.

The Leader of Opposition also expressed confidence that the NDA was ahead of the Congress-led UPA alliance as per the trends available till date.

"I can say that as of now, the BJP will emerge as the single largest party and would be much ahead of the Congress," he said.

Advani, who had a brief stop here on his way to Kolkata from Tamil Nadu, said, "our alliance too will be ahead of the UPA. Thanks to the hard work of our party workers, chief ministers and leaders, the situation today is very much in our favour, which even I did not anticipate."

He said in 2004, the NDA had lost due to over-confidence. However, this time the party has ensured that there is no such feeling.

When asked to comment on efforts by the Congress to woo Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Advani said, "Nitishji himself has clarified on this. All speculation on this issue is baseless and endless. There is no need to speculate on all this."
