New Delhi: Rejecting the possibility of a third front coming to power after the next Lok Sabha polls, BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said the very idea is a "tried and failed experiment" which will never become a reality.

He said regional parties cannot claim themselves as an alternative.

"There is no possibility of a third front in the country. The idea of a third front is a tried and failed experiment. It will never become a reality.”

"...It is a national party like BJP which will become an alternative," Naidu told reporters here on the sidelines of a three-day fast here by an Andhra Pradesh activist seeking enactment of a law for compulsory voting.

He alleged all parties who have been supporting Congress "are a part of their corruption".

"They cannot claim themselves as the alternative. I am sure people want Congress to go and BJP and NDA to come back. BJP is ready to take up the responsibility," he said.

Asked about BJP`s prime ministerial candidate, Naidu said it will be decided by the party at the appropriate time.
