Advani attacks 'third front' parties

KANPUR, APRIL 5. The Deputy Prime Minister, L.K. Advani, said today that the "third front" parties had no relevance at the national level but only "a vested interest in political uncertainty."

Speaking to presspersons here, he said: "These parties draw their strength from casteism and sectarianism. They are bereft of political issues and people should show them their place. On the other hand, we aim to strengthen democracy and make the country a developed state."

Reacting to the Congress' charge that the Union Home Ministry had imported "inferior" AK-47 rifles, he said the purchase has been done "sincerely. It has been processed honestly but I will look into the relevant papers."
