New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi Saturday expressed confidence that the United Progressive Alliance would win the 2014 elections, and virtually ruled out early Lok Sabha polls.

Talking informally to media people after the inauguration of National Media Centre here, Gandhi also expressed hope that the food security bill will be passed in the monsoon session of parliament.

Asked if UPA-III (United Progressive Alliance-III) will be a reality, she said: "Yes, of course, 100 percent."

To a question about the possibility of early general elections, she said: "Our aim is to go till the end (of the government's tenure)."

Asked about the food security bill which is pending despite government efforts for its passage, Gandhi said: "We are hopeful it will be passed."

The United Progressive Alliance government, now in its second term, has been facing intense criticism from the opposition on issues related price rise, the falling value of the rupee and corruption.

The term of the UPA-II government will end in May next year.
