Sharad Ya­dav-Upen­dra Kush­waha Finds Pos­si­bil­ity of Third Front in Bi­har

The Day After - - STATES DIARY -

Sharad Ya­dav who was busy giv­ing shape to the Ma­ha­gath­band­han is prob­a­bly chalk­ing out a third front in Bi­har with Left and RLSP. Some lead­ers with big po­lit­i­cal am­bi­tions are plan­ning a third front. If the Left par­ties don’t get good seats; they might part ways with the RJD-Congress al­liance. In­ter­est­ingly, there is buzz that Union Min­is­ter Upen­dra Kush­waha will also join the front if Kush­waha doesn’t get a re­spectable seat ei­ther from UPA or NDA. Third front may project Kush­waha as its CM can­di­date.

Left Front in Bi­har — the CPI, CPM, and CPML — have a base in dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the State. While the CPML has a good hold in cen­tral Bi­har i.e. Ar­rah and Bho­jpur, the CPI rules the roost in Cham­paran and Be­gusarai. Prob­a­bly Lalu Prasad doesn’t want to leave more than three seats for the Left, while they need at least five.
