By Super Admin

Lucknow, Mar 13, (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati today invited the third front leaders for further discussions on the issues related to the front in New Delhi on Sunday.

In a bid to revive the united front at the centre, leaders of several non-BJP, non-Congress parties launched a Third front with the aim of usurping power in Delhi.

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) General Secretary Satish Chandra Mishra has said that party is keen to project Mayawati as the newly formed Third Front's Prime Ministerial candidate.

Sources claimed that Mayawati wants the Third Front to finalize the PM candidate by March 15, which also marks BSP founder Kanshi Ram's birth anniversary.

She revealed her ambition soon after Third Front's was launched.

It is believed that Mayawati, who was in two minds about joining the coalition, sent her second-in-command Mishra, to the launch a rally only after being assured of the top slot.

The new Front comprises the Communist Party of India (CPI), Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM), Forward Bloc, Republican Party of India (RPI), Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Janata Dal Secular (JDS).

Leaders of the new alliance said both the Congress-led UPA and the BJP-led NDA have failed to address people's grievances and discounted suggestions that some regional parties are coming together on an opportunistic platform.

Meanwhile, talks are going on for seat sharing arrangement between Congress and NCP and BJP and Shiv Sena in Maharashtra. The Janata Dal (U) and BJP are still to finalise the seat sharing arrangement in Bihar. (ANI)
