We pity the 'extinct' Third Front: BJP
New Delhi, May 15: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday, May 14, said that the Third front has become 'extinct' even before the counting of votes in the Lok Sabha Elections begun.
“We pity the Third Front as it is becoming extinct even before counting has begun. Left has allowed the withering away of the Third Front," BJP Spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters.
Accusing the Left Parties of enabling the Third Front, Prasad added, "CPM has shown its true colours. Prakash Karat, the senior most leader of CPM, who was making claims of forming a Third Front — said that his party would support the Congress if the BJP is in a position to form the government. This is the height of disillusionment."
He called the Left parties opportunistic and said, “The Left enjoyed four-and-a-half years of power, then indulged in six months of drama of opposing the government and now wishes to come back to power."
He expressed confidence over BJP emerging as the single largest party and National Democratic Alliance (NDA) ending up as the largest pre-poll alliance.
“We have also done our internal survey which shows the BJP emerging as the single largest party and the NDA as the most credible pre-poll alliance," Prasad added.
Quoting from the internal survey he said BJP will win 166 seats and the NDA will be victorious in 218 constituencies.
