Mulayam hints at third front

Mulayam hints at third front

Nurturing prime ministerial ambitions, Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday dropped hints that he was in favour of forming a third front and said he had held talks in this regard with other leaders.


Mulayam, who had earlier said that a third front could emerge only after the next Lok Sabha elections, said while speaking at a meeting at Etawah, his home district, that the SP would emerge as the “single biggest block” within the front.

The SP supremo said that CPM general secretary Prakash Karat met him a few days ago and they had discussed the issue of forming a third front comprising non-Congress and non-BJP parties.

Mulayam said: “Prakash Karat had met me four-five days back. We discussed about the third front. I asked him to speak to other like minded parties.” He said that Karat had invited him to attend the CPM rally in Delhi on October 30. “I will attend the rally.

Several leaders from other political parties will also be present there,” the SP chief said.
Mulayam said that the SP would not have any alliance with communal forces. “The forthcoming Lok Sabha polls are very crucial. No party will get a majority in the polls and the third front will bag the maximum number of seats,” he said.
