Mulayam feels SP will dominate Front

Doesn't hide his own ambition to be PM

Hoping to play a crucial role in the formation of the next government after the Lok Sabha elections, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav pitched for a third front saying the SP would emerge as its biggest constituent even as he launched a scathing attack on the BJP prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi and accused him of spending hundreds of crores on his rallies.

“The Third Front will form the government after the elections and SP will be its biggest constituent,” Mulayam said while addressing a public meeting at Gorakhpur, about 275 kilometers from here on Saturday.

Indicating that he also nurtured prime ministerial ambitions, the SP supremo said he would also contest the Lok Sabha elections.

“I am also in the fray. I hope you (people) will make me something,” Mulayam said.
The SP leader charged Modi with spending huge amount of money to make his rallies successful.

“Modi is spending around Rs 200 to Rs 300 crores on each of his rallies. Just one of his rallies had a budget of Rs 180 crore,” he alleged.

He said in contrast the SP rallies were being organised with the contributions from its workers and leaders. Mulayam also claimed that the SP rallies had been attracting more crowds in comparison to the Modi rallies.

The SP supremo listed the achievements of the state government during its two-year stint and said it had been able to fulfil a majority of its promises.

He also rejected Modi’s claim about development of Gujarat and said UPhad developed more than Gujarat.

He also slammed the Congress for failing to curb rising prices and said the inflation had impacted the common man most.
