Assembly polls have bearing on national politics: Venkaiah
Kottayam, Apr 11 (UNI) BJP Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu today said that the Assembly election results would have a bearing on the national political situation.
At a Meet-the-Press programme here, he contended that the result might lead to uncertainty and would affect the future of the UPA Government.
Almost all parties in the UPA were not happy with the performance of the Congress led UPA. The CPI(M) and others had serious differences on the foreign, economic, reforms, disinvestment, labour and other policies of the UPA. If the Communists won the elections in Kerala and West Bengal they would apply more pressure on the government and it might even affect the future of the UPA Government, Mr Naidu said.
Regarding the prospect for a third front, the BJP leader said it was only a dream and there was no possibility for such a front.
Since the BJP and Congress were two major parties, excluding them no front was possible in the country under the present situation.
Further, if a third front was formed the present UPA Government would go and the BJP would be happy, he added.
Mr Naidu alleged that the Communists were saying something in public and doing something else in private. They were only barking and would not bite. The UDF and LDF were both sides of the same coin, he said.
Mr Naidu expressed the confidence that the BJP would open its account in the Assembly elections in Kerala.
