While the Congress and the BJP are trying to assert the bipolar nature of next national elections, UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav Friday sought to stress the possibility of a viable alternative in the form of a “third force” emerging in the country.
“If you look around, this third force is present in all states in some strength.... In UP, in Bihar and we will work to form an alternative force everywhere,” he told reporters here.
“People want an alternative whatever its name,” said the CM. Citing UP as the sixth biggest exporter of IT products in the country, Yadav said his government was working towards developing UP as an international IT hub.
“Government will strive to make UP more visible on the IT map,” the CM said.
