'Confident' Akhilesh says Secular Third Front will emerge

Ranchi, Sept 5 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said that a Secular Third Front would emerge to eliminate the problems of the people in the wake of the falling rupee against the dollar, inflation and unemployment.

Yadav while addressing the Samajwadi Party's Jharkhand unit convention here said: "The country is looking at Samajwadi Party and other secular leaders. We are optimistic that a secular Third Front will emerge soon to challenge the Congress and BJP, and address the problems of the people of all sections of the society."

He also mentioned various schemes of the state government like those of laptops, cycles, Kishan Bima and free higher education for girls from poor families, and claimed that an industrial environment has been created in the state.

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister urged his partymen in Jharkhand to garner support for the SP in the run up to the Lok Sabha elections, and accused the Congress of breaking all barriers of corruption.

He blamed the ruling Congress government for the present economic condition and questioned the UPA's ambitious Food Security Bill over its proper and efficient implementation. (ANI)
