Lucknow: RLD chief Ajit Singh’s efforts to web an alternative front - Lok Kranti Morcha - with the smaller parties to contest Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh seems to be going down the drain as fissures among the fringe parties has started cropping up much ahead of the Assembly polls.

Formed six month ago under the leadership of Jat leader Ajit Singh, Lok Kranti Morcha has not been able to come up with any common minimum programme despite parties like, Peace party, Quami Ekta Dal, Indian Justice Party, Bharatiya Lokhit party, Ati Pichhda Mahasangh, Shoshit Samaj Dal and Lokmanch assuring their participation in the front.

Singh, who was making tall claims an alternative collision, has now sensed that there has been stagnancy in the collision.

The main ally of the Morcha, Peace Party’s National president Dr Ayub’s indifferent attitude has been a major headache for Singh. However, Singh has said: “I don’t care what Dr Ayub thinks. Lokkranti Morcha would continue to exist.”

Raebareli MLA Akhilesh Singh and Faizabad MLA Jitendra Singh had joined the peace party few days back. It is being said that some more MLAs might join the party in near future.

State in-charge of the party, Akhilesh Singh said, “The party is going to contest from 250 seats.”

As political parties continue to look for several permutation and combinations, the decision of Peace Party to contest from as many seats makes things complex in the RLD-led Morcha.
