CPI senior leader, ex CM of West Bengal, Budhdhadeb Bhattacharjee has said that non-congress, non-BJP third front is the only alternative to lead the nation in the right direction now. After KCR’s yesterday declaration that he will keep up his secular credentials, will go with the third front so as to form a non-congress, non-BJP government at the center, the third front pitch is hitting new highs. KCR has even announced that key players like Mayawati, Jayalalithaa, Naveen Patnaik are also talking to him about the third option comprising several small regional parties.
Mamata Banerjee has also said that her party, TMC will decide the next PM. She was attending election rallies in Darjeeling and Siliguri in Bengal. “We will decide who will be the next Prime Minister. There will be no government in Delhi without our involvement. We have captured West Bengal and my next target is to capture Delhi. West Bengal will again become number one state in the country,” Didi said.
