Nitish Kumar, Lalu Yadav raise pitch for third front

With the Lok Sabha elections drawing closer, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav once again made a strong pitch for a ‘third front’ on Saturday.
Kumar announced that several parties will meet in Delhi on 5 February to discuss the ‘third front.’ Representatives from around 14 parties from all over the country are likely to participate in the meeting.

‘We are in talks. The Left took the initiative and we are supporting them. Both the Congress and the BJP will be our enemies,’ the Bihar chief minister said in Patna. In Lucknow, Mulayam Singh, who provides outside support to the Congress-led UPA government, also hinted at a liking for the ‘third front’. ‘We have already won UP. Now it’s time for Delhi. SP will play a big role in forming the government at the Centre. Once we ruled Delhi, but the government didn’t last long. We have to ensure this time the government works,’ Yadav told his party workers as he kicked off a cycle yatra in Uttar Pradesh.
