New Delhi, Mar 31 (UNI) Describing the emergence of Third Front parties as an ''illusory combination of political forces bereft of ideology,'' the BJP today said it had turned more of a platform for convenient political bargain.
BJP spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad expressed disappointment at the anti Congress outfit like the Samajwadi Party of Mulayam Singh, that it was ready for a political cocktail in Uttar Pradesh by joining hands with the Congress with ''CBI as the bar-tender.'' The people are sick about the facade which is going on in the name of Third Front, he said. It has become a comical political theatre staged in the name of an illusory front, he added.
He said the country was now heading to a bipolar polity headed by the BJP and the Congress, the two principal parties leading the alliances and there was no scope for a third force to emerge as a ''honest alternative'', he said.
The AIADMK which was with the Third Front was no longer with it and similarly the Telugu Desam Party which was with the NDA had parted its ranks and had moved over to the Third Front.
As far as NDA was concerned he said it was ''fit and fine.'' Asked if his party would have no alignment in future with the Third Front parties, he made a cryptic remark ''Politics is the art of possibility and nothing could be said at this point of time.'' UNI MCN MIR AS1847
