Jabalpur, Nov 26 (UNI) Rashtriya Swabhiman Andolan (RSA) leader and former BJP ideologue K N Govindacharya today said like-minded political outfits would be brought under one umbrella to form a nationalist front for contesting forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.
Mr Govindacharya, while talking to UNI here last night said, talks were underway in this regard. These political outfits would meet in Prayag on the occasion of Makar Sakranti on January 14 when a final shape would be provided to this front.
''This nationalistic front would contest Lok Sabha polls under its own banner but its constituents would be free to contest independently also,'' he said.
Alleging that present political alliances in the country lacked values and principles, he charged them with becoming pro-minority and pro-rich. Growing clout of capitalism has ended democracy within political parties.
On senior BJP leader L K Advani being declared Prime Ministerial candidate by the BJP, Mr Govindacharya said political arithmetic did not indicate that Mr Advani could become Prime Minister unless it happened by fluke.
Claiming that the BJP and the Congress will be limited to 250 seats during the next Lok Sabha polls, he said Mr H D Deve Gowda and Mr I K Gujaral had become Prime Ministers by fluke.
Mr Govindacharya described Mr Advani expressing his desire to build Ram temple in Ayodhya as the proof of double standard of the BJP and pointed out that the previous National Democratic Alliance Government had failed to provide better arrangement for 'darshan' of 'Ram Lala' let alone building the temple.
Observing that nothing like 'Hindu terrorism' can exist like ''milk cannot be black and crow cannot be white,'' he noted that it would be a matter of concern for the country if one per cent of the charges levelled by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad against Sadhvi Pragya Thakur were proved.
Or else, unfortunate situation of insulting and defaming saints could be created in the country.
He claimed that the BJP and the Congress would not get clear majority and the situation of hung assembly could not be denied in Madhya Pradesh.
