New Delhi: Samajwadi Party President Mulayam Singh Yadav seems to be searching possibility for formation of third front by reaching out to other UPA allies in run up to the 2014 general elections.
Sources said that some of the UPA allies and the political parties extending outside support to Manmohan Singh government are searching for a new possibility ahead of 2014 general elections.
The allies are unhappy over Manmohan Singh government’s style of functioning alleging that Congress is not adhering to coalition ‘dharma’. They are of the view that it will not be beneficial for them to go with sinking UPA in the next general elections.

The UPA allies think that if the Congress doesn’t fair well in the general elections, they will be in better position to bargain with the grand old party in the government formation.
Mulayam Singh recently held discussions with NCP Chief Sharad Yadav over the style of Manmohan Singh government’s functioning. Meanwhile, a senior CPI leader is also in touch with SP supremo who is yet to hold talks with CPI (M) General Secretary Prakash Karat over the issue. HD Devegowda-led Janata Dal (S) is also batting for a pre-poll alliance.

Both the SP and CPI (M) have been sharing warm relations with one another. However, in 2008 their relations had soured over the Indo-US nuclear deal, when CPI (M) had rocked the UPA boat by withdrawing support to it. Later, SP had rescued the Manmohan Singh government.

SP Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Agarwal said, “People want to get rid of corruption ridden UPA, while the BJP has failed to project itself as an alternative to the Manmohan Singh government.”
