Manmohan Singh Thiruvananthapuram, April 3 (IANS) Defence Minister A.K. Antony Friday said the Congress will not support any other front after the Lok Sabha polls.
Antony, who is on a state-wide tour to campaign for the Congress-led United Democratic Front, said: “No one other than Manmohan Singh will get the support of the Congress party for the post of prime minister. This is for certain. We are confident that we will be the winners and will form the next government. The other parties can come and support us.”

He added that only the Congress can form a stable central government.

“The Congress has decided that we will not ally at a national level with any party. It is only the Congress which is contesting in all the states. Can you tell me one more party (of the United Progressive Alliance) which is doing that?” Antony said.

On the Third Front, he said: “It’s is just a dream and everyone is free to dream.”
