No chances of joining Third Front: Amar SinghMarch 16th, 2009 - 11:08 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 16 (IANS) Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh Monday ruled out the possibility of his party joining the Third Front, saying he saw no hope as long as Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) general secreatry Prakash Karat was at its helm.
Amar Singh said Karat denied him an appointment to “discuss my personal issue” recently only because of his proximity with the Congress.
“If comrade Harkishan Singh Surjeet had been the general secretary of the CPI-M, there would have some hope (of his party joining the Third Front),” Amar Singh told reporters.
He was asked if there was a possibility of the Samajwadi Party joining the Third Front, if the Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) left the grouping.
