New Delhi, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav today ruled out formation of a third front ahead of 2014 Lok Sabha elections, saying differences could crop up among various parties on ticket distribution if it takes shape now.
Yadav, however, reiterated that the third front will be formed after elections and claimed the next prime minister will be from among the alliance partners.
Mulayam further hinted that he will meet CPM general secretary Prakash Karat soon and hold discussions on the possibilities of formation of a Third Front ahead of 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
“We are holding talks in this regard with Prakash Karatji and AB Bardhanji. Karat ji has invited me to attend the meeting at Talkatora in Delhi on October 30. I and some other like-minded big leaders will attend the meeting,” the SP chief said.
Yadav, however, refused to divulge more details of his proposed meeting with the Left leaders.
Mulayam, while addressing a gathering at the Fisher Reserve Forest in Etawah where a lion safari is being set up on Sunday, had said, “The SP has always fought against communal forces and weakened them. Its main struggle is against the BJP.”
“We will not let communal forces come to power and will crush such type of forces. Now these forces are misleading people by levelling false allegations against the SP, just to gain political mileage in the Lok Sabha elections. I urge people to support the truth and not get misled by the misinformation campaign launched by these forces,” Mulayam, who was accompanied by his son and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, said.
