Third front to contest from all seats in state: Maheshwar Singh

Himachal Lokhit Party (HLP) convener Maheshwar Singh stated that the third front would field its candidates on all the 68 seats in the coming Assembly elections and each of its constituents would prepare its own manifesto and share a common minimum programme. Third front consist newly founded HLP, CPM and CPI.

Addressing the press conference here today, Maheshwar said there was a lull before the storm in the state as people were silent, exploring possibility of electing an alternate third-front government. Maheshwar claimed to get good response from people and stated that front will release the list of candidates and manifesto soon after the BJP and Congress do the same.

He said the party had been registered and a party symbol would be allotted by the Election Commission soon after the notification was issued and model code imposed.
