Hyderabad, Apr 9 (ANI): Communist Party of India (CPI) general secretary A. B. Bardhan has expressed confidence of forming a non-Congress and non-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government after the forthcoming general elections.
Bardhan while addressing a news conference here on Wednesday said India no more can be fitted in Congress Party and BJP thus some other collation should be voted to power.
"India cannot be fitted into a so-called two party system. We are in for coalitions and there should be a coalition. And we think that the coalition that should be voted to power should be non-Congress, non-BJP Government, which the grand alliance in Andhra is, and which all the alliances that we have forged into are trying at the Centre," said Bardhan.
The Communists are spearheading a loose grouping of smaller regional parties popularly known as the 'Third Front', which pitches itself as an alternative to Congress and BJP-led alliance.
The Communists pulled out of the Congress party-led UPA Government last year over the issue of nuclear deal with the United States.
Amidst all these trends, the Communists are hoping several fence-sitting parties, who in the past have allied themselves either with the Congress or the BJP, will this time join the Third Front. (ANI)
