Mulayam reveals his PM dream

Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav










Ruling out any pre-poll non-Congress, non-BJP coalition, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said Thursday the Third Front would be formed only after the next general election.

He also made it clear he was not averse to becoming Prime Minister, although he said he wouldn’t be projected as PM candidate before the elections.

“The Third Front has always been formed after elections. The Samajwadi Party will contest the polls on its own. The Third Front will be formed only after assessing the situation emerging after the election,” he told the media at the end of the SP’s two-day national executive meeting in Kolkata.

To persistent questions by reporters, Mr Yadav kept insisting there was absolutely no question of any prepoll third alternative being formed. He also said there had been no talks with any party (either Trinamul or CPM) on the Third Front.
