JD(S) keen on Third Front rally in B'lore

The JD(S) is planning to organise a public rally at Nelamangala near Bangalore, to announce the launch of an alternative front (also called Third Front) to the UPA and the NDA.

A meeting of the leaders of regional parties including the SP, JD(U), JD(S) and Left parties is scheduled to be held on February 5 in New Delhi, where the leaders are likely to discuss the formation of the Third Front. Besides, the decision on the first rally of the front will also be taken in the meeting, sources said.

JD(S) chief H D Deve Gowda, who has taken the initiative to form the Third Front, wants to organise the first rally in Karnataka. The JD(S) had organised the first rally of regional party leaders at Nelamangala ahead of the 2009 LS elections. Gowda said the leaders would like to organise the first rally at either Lucknow or Patna, where the SP and the JD(U) are in power respectively. If they agree, the JD(S) will host it in Karnataka, he said.
