Varanasi: The Aam Aadmi Party today did not rule out backing Third Front to stop BJP from coming to power, saying it may offer issue based support to a non-Congress “secular” dispensation.
With the marathon Lok Sabha elections wrapping up tomorrow, senior AAP leader Gopal Rai said AAP will consider offering issue-based support to a Third Front government if such an initiative was launched based on election results which will be out on May 16.
“Yes, we may extend issue based support if there is a situation that demands our support to a Third Front government,” Rai told PTI here.
The talk of possible cobbling together of “secular forces” to stop BJP from coming to power has gained momentum in the last couple of weeks with Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and a number of other leaders exuding confidence of such a formation, expecting that Congress would not do well to form UPA-III.
Rai, considered close to AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal,, however, said a decision on future role of the party will be taken after analysing the outcome of the election.
