New Delhi: LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan has said that without the support of BJP or Congress, no Third Front can materialize after LOk Sabha elections in 2014.
"See, a Third Front is not possible without the support of BJP or Congress. Their support is mandatory. Since the alliance would have to be secular, it can't take BJP's support and it will have to take Congress' support. That is why I have stated the main issue is Congress, and LJP wants to maintain an alliance with Congress," Paswan told PTI in an interview.
With RJD supremo Lalu Prasad landing in jail in connection with the Fodder Scam, Paswan said there was a need for serious discussion among the current allies to decide on the future course ahead of the 2014 elections.
He said LJP is interested in staying in alliance with Congress but the onus is on the ruling party to decide on their partners.
"We want our alliance with Congress to stay, but they have to decide on the future course of the alliance. At the moment, we are together with RJD but now that Lalu ji is in jail, and election time is nearing, there is a need for a serious discussion among the parties," Paswan said.
