Whenever I hear about Third Front or United Front, it comes to me all the history notes that I had studied during my school days about World Wars where different countries opened up different fronts to stop the march of other countries. At least there it was for a good reason to protect the countrymen from the enemies. But in our country a front is created to take India to sluggery. These few people who can't get along with any party thus form a third front. They have so many Prime Minister aspirants that its number exceeds the number of parties in the front. They themselves admit that they won't have the support to form a government on their own but they want to become king maker. These king makers are nothing but the ones who stabilise government and hamper in proper decision making of a government.
Once they name it United They irony of the fact is that before every elections they form such fronts and after every elections they break up thus keeping general public in an illusion.Front, on the other occasion they say it to be Third Front. To me its all the same. The parties that could not get into a good bargain with any of the two major National Parties, start talking of all these fronts. This is a conglomeration of all the political parties that have hardly done much for the country apart from forming Governments once or twice in their respective states.
My question is: What happens all these fronts after the elections and where do they disappear????? Politics is nothing but a game where politicians consider only their individual interests... Give them a ministerial berth and they will forget all their ideologies, pre poll alliances, manifestos, etc. with the help of which they have won won a few of the seats. So in politics crocodiles are better placed than the humans.
