Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday said he is confident that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) will get a third term.

“I have always believed that we will have a third go as UPA and the people will again repose their faith in us,” Dr. Singh said in a tweet on Monday shortly after eight new union ministers were sworn in.

This is the second term in government for the Congress-led UPA. The next Lok Sabha polls are scheduled for 2014.

On JD(U) severing ties with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), he said: “It is their internal affair.”
