No Left support to form government: Pranab MukherjeeApril 24th, 2009 - 10:58 pm ICT by ANI
Burdwan (West Bengal), Apr 24 (ANI): Senior Congress leader and External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Friday ruled out the possibility to form government at the Centre with the support of Left parties.
“The Congress had always formed government at the Centre without the support of Left parties. In 2004, they themselves came forward to support the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) to save their existence,” Pranab Mukherjee said at an election rally here.
Mukherjee further said the Left parties did not exist outside the three states of West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura.
The Congress leader also ruled out possibility of the ‘Third Front’ forming a government at the Centre.
“After the results come out, it will be proved that the Third Front is merely an imaginary thing,” Mukherjee said. (ANI)
