Agartala, Apr 16 (ANI): Senior Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday compared the newly-formed ‘Third Front’ with a drama, saying it was a conglomeration of some State parties in search of a Prime Minister.

“The Third Front is like the drama ‘Six Characters in Search Of An Author’ by Luigi Pirandello. In the drama, the characters were searching for the author. The Third Front is conglomeration of some state parties in search of a Prime Minister,” Mukherjee said at a press conference here.

Mukherjee also dismissed possibility of the ‘Third Front’ forming a government at the Centre.

“There could be no dispensation at the Centre without the help of either the Congress or the BJP. Formation of a government led by Third Front is a dream. Whenever, any government minus Congress or BJP was formed, it had to depend on either Congress or BJP,” he added. (ANI)
