Sanjay sums up the newly formed Third Front in Karnataka and, no, he doesn’t think they’re the biggest, brightest new kids on the block. In fact he describes them as:
political parties who are left-overs from failed alliances, and who are singularly drifting on their own life-boats.
Ouch. His final verdict?
The Third Front will end up helping Congress-UPA.
BJP stands to lose big-time.
The Third Front will see a marginal improvement, but aggregate will not exceed 130, far away from the half-way mark.
The Third Front is more like a regional party itself, and lacks a national representation.
The Congress must strike a deal with the Samajwadi Party in UP to take advantage of a weak BJP, and threaten Mayawati on her home pitch.
