Even after formally announcing the formation of the Third Front, JD (S) chief H D Deve Gowda on Wednesday said that the final shape of the alliance would depend on the post-poll equations.
"Though the four Left parties, TDP, Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), AIADMK and our own JD (S) have come forward to form the Third Front, the final shape of the alliance will depend on the post-poll equations," Gowda told reporters here.
"All secular leaders would rise to form the government at the Centre, depending on the post-poll scenario," he said.
Speaking about BSP supremo Mayawati, the former PM, who had two days back announced the formation of the Front, said, "Mayawati had shared the platform with us immediately after the July 22 trust vote last year. However, she had made her intentions clear that she would not share seats with anybody in Uttar Pradesh and is not interested in entering any alliance," Gowda said.
He said that AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa, who recently became a part of the Front, has no problem with the UP Chief Minister. "Jayalalithaa has never ever had any problems with Mayawati. This was never an issue," he said.
