Congress won’t support Third Front to form govt: Rahul Gandhi


Rahul Gandhi

Amethi (UP): Congress Vice President Rahul today ruled out the possibility of his party supporting the Third Front to form the government.

“We will not support any front,” Gandhi, who was campaigning in his constituency, told reporters.

He was asked whether Congress could support a Third Front government.

“We will get the required number (of seats),” he said, while replying to queries on whether his party will explore post-election tie-ups to form the government.

Rahul’s remarks are significant as they came a day after CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat said a repeat of the 1996-like situation is possible and the Congress may be forced to support a government of secular parties at the Centre to keep the BJP out of power

Also, Samajwadi Party leaders have been claiming that they would be getting support of Congress in formation of Third Front government.
