Bhubaneswar: Samajwadi Party leader and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today said this is not the time to talk about the Third Front.
“There are no elections now. Why talk about the Third Front?” Akhilesh said while replying to a question about the Third Front.
Earlier, after meeting Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik yesterday, Akhilesh had said they did not talk on Third Front.
He said his father and party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav wants to make SP a national party.
On Odisha, the UP chief minister said, “Here I find more bi-cycles than motor-cycles on the streets. You know, bi-cycle is our election symbol.”
“We will field candidates in about 50 Assembly seats and four Lok Sabha seats in Odisha in the next elections,” a senior Samajwadi Party leader said after Akhilesh held a meeting with leaders in the state party unit.
