Poll trend say BJP will not come to power: Mulayam

Asserting that neither BJP nor Congress would come to power, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav today claimed that a Third Front government would be formed at the Centre after the Lok Sabha elections.

"Neither BJP nor Congress would come to power. Since only Third Front would be formed at the Centre, the more seat Samajwadi Party would win, the more it would have a say," Yadav said while addressing an election meeting here this afternoon.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and son Akhilesh Yadav yesterday had also claimed that a Third Front will form a "stable government" with Congress' support after this polls.

"The way in which election trend appears, BJP will not be able to reach the magic figure and form government. Congress will emerge weakest after elections...The parties associated with Third Front will get maximum number of seats and will form the next government", Akhilesh told PTI.

The SP leader also demanded withdrawal of Election Commission's ban on Azam Khan.

Mulayam assured the farmers that like free irrigation facilities they would also get free power facilities after one year.

The farmers would get compensation if their crop is ruined owing to natural calamity.

"Nobody would be allowed to die owing to lack of money...Government has made arrangement for free treatment of diseases like cancer, kidney trouble etc", he said.

Taking a jib at BJP, Mulayam said that the party's claim of coming to power was an absolute "lie".

"Modi would never become a Prime Minister as a cunning person in his party would not allow him to fulfill his ambition", he said.

After elections, artisans of different trades would be called to Lucknow.

The problem related to their trade would be asked and then solution would be found.
