Mulayam`s 3rd Front statements misleading: Rajnath
Gwalior (MP): Describing Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav`s remarks favouring a Third Front, as "misleading", senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh here on Thursday sought a firm assurance from the SP on withdrawing support to the UPA.
"The statements of Mulayam are misleading and if he is serious on the issue of Third Front then he should give in writing that his party has withdrawn support from the Congress-led UPA," Singh told the reporters here.
Yesterday Yadav had dubbed the Congress as scam-tainted while his party SP spoke of difficulties in continuing support to UPA government if its allies start deserting it.
Yadav also said a decision on forming the Third Front of non-Congress, non-BJP parties will be taken only after the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
"Everybody knows that the UPA is surviving because of the support given by the SP and the BSP," Rajnath Singh added.
Singh was here to take part in the bike rally organised by the youth wing of the party as part of its programmes being organised on the occasion of Swami Vivekanand`s 150th anniversary year.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, BJP General Secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh, Narendra Singh Tomar and the State Party President Prabhat Jha among others were also present on the occasion.
Referring to the Third Front, the former BJP President said that everybody knows that it has no future and a discussion on it gains momentum every time before the polls.
"The experiment of Third Front has been always unsuccessful while former Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led NDA gave a stable, corruption-free government for nearly six years to the country. People should vote for the BJP-led NDA again as its claim over power is much more than others," Singh said.
On the alleged coal scam, he said the BJP stands on its
demand for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s resignation, cancellation of coal block allotments and a judicial inquiry under the Supreme Court judge into the matter.
On a related query, he said that both Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh have not committed anything wrong in allocation of coal blocks.
He also praised the ruling BJP government in Madhya Pradesh for doing a commendable work in many areas.
The senior BJP leader refused to comment on feud between Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh and Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray and said every citizen has the right to live and work in any part of the country.
