Left Front hold hope for emergence of Third Front

While the TMC Ministers have handed over their resignation to the PM over the FDI in retail split, Left parties have already started making their own calculations possible alliances with the Samajwadi Party and the potential to form a Third Front for the next elections.

Will the Third Front see Mulayam and Left together? PTI

"There is clearly a viability for Non-BJP, Non-Congress parties to provide a credible alternative," said D Raja, CPI leader.

He also accused the UPA government of bowing down to the pressures of foreign and domestic multinational corporations on issues of FDI in retail.

On the same note, JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav hailed Mulayam Singh as a partner in the formation of the possible Third Front.

"In the Bharat Bandh, SP fully supported us and was against the government on all the issues," Yadav said.

He dismissed the BJP as a possible alternative reminding that they had not yet spoken of destabilising the government.
