Third front will emerge in country soon: Amar Singh

Wednesday 5 April 2006

Hubli (Karnataka): Samajwadi Party General Secretary Amar Singh today (Apr 05, 2006) said the Congress party would be humbled in the coming assembly polls in five states and a third front would emerge in the country soon.

"The Congress party would be humbled by the electorate in Assam, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura in the ensuing polls as anti-Congress wave is sweeping these states", he told sources here.

The results of the assembly polls in these five states will have an impact on the UPA government and a "third front would emerge after the polls", he said.

He accused Congress of indulging in "petty politics in trying to save its President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi" while Jaya Bachchan belonging to SP was disqualified from Rajya Sabha membership over the issue of holding office of profit.

Save her face and not sacrifice

"Sonia Gandhi resigned her Lok Sabha seat and as Chairperson of National Advisory Committee to save her face and it is not a sacrifice", Singh quipped.

He also termed BJP leaders Rajnath Singh and L K Advani’s ’Suraksha yatra’ as ’swaraksha yatra.’

Later addressing a convention of party workers he claimed that the new BJP-JDS coalition in Karnataka would not last long and appealed to the people to strengthen his party, which was now being led by former Chief Minister S Bangarappa.

Taking an indirect swipe at the Congress, Singh said "just as it (Cong) is a family party. Kumaraswamy’s government is also father and son’s party. There is no difference between Congress and JDS", he said.
