Hyderabad: BJP senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu has remarked that 'Third Front or Federal Front' was a failed experiment, and people would not trust parties that were part of it. This statement comes in the wake of serious efforts by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who even got in touch with her counterparts in Odisha and Bihar, Naveen Patnaik and Nitish Kumar respectively, to forge a third front.
History goes to show that 'third front' had neither effective leadership nor a definite action plan, Venkaiah Naidu said while addressing a press conference here on Thursday. Some of the allies, which were supporting the Congress-led UPA government until recently, were responsible for the sins committed by it and people will not accept them even if they form a separate entity, he observed. The Rajya Sabha MP informed that BJP would conduct 'jail bharo' programmes from June 17 to 30. The rank and file of the party including top leaders would stage protests demanding the ineffective UPA Government to step down from power and thus save the nation, he said.
Meanwhile, Venkaiah Naidu appealed to Janata Dal (United) to follow 'coalition dharma' after some of its leaders criticised Narendra Modi after his appointment as BJP's election campaign committee chairman. The BJP senior leader demanded convening of special session of parliament for passing the 'Food Security Bill'.
flays TDP's decision
The BJP leader was critical of TDP's decision to boycott few media houses for regularly reporting news against the party. Such actions are uncalled for in a democratic set-up, he felt.
