Raigunj (West Bengal), Apr 26 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister and Communist Party of India- Marxist (CPM) stalwart Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Sunday expressed confidence on Third Front forming a government at the Centre.
Bhattacharjee also said the Front would keep 'communal forces' like Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) at bay.
"The Third Front will come to power and would keep communal forces like the BJP and the RSS at bay. The BJP means danger to the country, because the saffron party in power means riots and violence," Bhattacharjee told an election rally here.
The Bengal Chief Minister claimed that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) allies were deserting the BJP because of its communal agenda.
Bhattacharjee also criticized the Congress-led UPA government for 'betraying' them by signing the civil nuclear deal.
"Manmohan Singh betrayed us by signing the civil nuclear deal without discussing it with us. Has the Prime Minister thought of the price of per unit of nuclear power?" he added. (ANI)
