Jaipur, Dec 18 (UNI) The Communist Party of India (Marxist) is mooting a Third Front in the wake of the coming Assembly election in Rajasthan next year.

CPM state general secretary Vasudev addressing a press conference here today said the party has adopted a policy of increasing its strength in the Rajasthan Assembly and might contest about 30 seats in the upcoming Assembly election in the state.

''The CPM is also exploring the possibility of forming a Third Front with like minded parties to emerge as an alternative to both the Congress and the BJP in the state,'' he said.

Mr Vasudev alleged that people were not happy with either the ruling BJP, which is ''neck deep in corruption'' and the Congress, which has been a ''mute spectator to the BJP ''misrule'' in the last four years.

The CPM has registered a 35 per cent growth in its membership during the last three years in the state he said adding the party has adopted a twin policy of mass agitation along with strengthening the party's organisational apparatus to capitalise on its good will among the masses.
