After the victory of Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh and diminishing results of Congress and BJP , voices favouring a Third – Front is growing beyond whispers. The Congress is following each move by its allies, particularly the move of TMC.But the point is can groups of regional parties form a coalition government which can work in the interest of all states ? If UPA and NDA governments remain afraid on allies getting upset and asking for favours to keep the coalition intact what difference would a Third-Front make? It would be again alliance of groups, asking for favours in order to keep their support intact to the consortium!
Well, so far , since decades the alliance governments have been ruling , be it in the form of NDA or UPA , after all , they are alliances and the Third-Front concept is also not new but past reveals it has never been successful in Indian politics.
