Any political combination that includes Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Mayawati as a constituent partner is destined to collapse, Union Minister and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) President Ram Vilas Paswan prophesized on Friday.
The “Third Front” is getting stronger”, but Mayawati will make it increasingly difficult for it to function, Paswan said at a press conference.
Reiterating that no Third Front government was possible without Congress support, Paswan said that he expected the UPA alliance to obtain full majority in the ensuing parliamentary elections.
If numbers of the Congress fall short, it might be possible for the Third Front to form the government with Congress support, Paswan said.
Meanwhile, the Rashtriya Dehat Morcha has announced its merger with the LJP, the Morcha’s national president Kesari Singh Gurjar has announced.
