Congress Vice President Rahul today ruled out the possibility of his party supporting the Third Front to form the government.
"We will not support any front," Gandhi, who was campaigning in his constituency, told reporters.
He was asked whether Congress could support a Third Front government.
"We will get the required number (of seats)," he said, while replying to queries on whether his party will explore post-election tie-ups to form the government.
Rahul's remarks are significant as they came a day after CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat said a repeat of the 1996-like situation is possible and the Congress may be forced to support a government of secular parties at the Centre to keep the BJP out of power
Also, Samajwadi Party leaders have been claiming that they would be getting support of Congress in formation of Third Front government.
Pappu: It is " nonsensence " to support 3rd front?
Pappu is unaware of one of the basic tenets of politics - never burn your bridges. By declaring such intentions well before the polls, he will either foreclose his options or will have to, like Kejriwal, make a u-turn and invite more ridicule.
Pappu should be worried if he needs third front's support to be opposition leader.
A la "utter nonsense ordinance" Pappu takes 3 weeks to come up with his comment.
Rahul Gandhi has a point. Which 3rd front will he support-one led by Mamata or one led by the Left?
This 3A and 3B will never support one another. WHy should Rahul Gandhi support either one?
But luckily for him, such a situation will not arise. NDA will form the govt.
Rahul simply has to decide which team he will support for the Opposition.
