SP supremo had launched the “Fourth Front” with RLD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and LJP supremo Ram Vilas Paswan at a huge function in Lucknow claiming that the trio would head the government at the Centre since there was no other alliance strong enough to counter them. A little later, the SP slipped down to supporting a “Third Front” coalition before eventually coming down to supporting a Congress-led coalition in New Delhi.
SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, while addressing a gathering in Mainpuri on Thursday morning said his party will not mind supporting a Congress led government at the Centre post Lok Sabha polls. Later in the day, party general secretary Amar Singh approved of Mulayam’s statement while talking to the mediapersons in Ghaziabad.
But Mulayam’s support for a Congress led government came with a rider: “We will support it – or perhaps any other party for that matter – which agrees to pull down the Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh.”
