‘Third front tired, federal front will rule’
TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee seems confident that a different kind of Federal Front will rule the country after the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. She rubbished the Third Front as a ‘tired front’ on Tuesday. When asked if she is a contender for the PM’s post, she said: ‘People will decide’. She ruled out any alliance with the Congress or the BJP and hoped that people would ‘reward’ her party ‘abundantly’ in the polls. ‘Any force with the Communists in it is not viable because the people have rejected the CPI(M). So it is not Third Front, it is a tired front,’ she said. ‘We are hopeful that a Federal Front government will lead this nation,’ she added.
