Claiming that his party could come to power at the Centre, Samajwadi Party
president Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday said the present political
equations indicate that both Congress and BJP would not be able to get a
majority in the 2014 general election. He hinted that third front could
form a government.

"The present equations indicate that both the national parties- Congress
and the BJP- would not be able to get majority and in many states it is
the third front which appears to be winning," the former chief minister

Uttar Pradesh would play an important role in the coming elections and it
is the responsibility of SP workers and leaders to help the party win 60
seats, he said.

By winning maximum seats in the Lok Sabha, party would maintain its upper
hand; he said adding that "it could also come to power at the Centre."

He asked party workers to maintain decorum and help find solutions to the
problems faced by the people.

"The workers should behave properly and become a partner in resolving
problems of the common people...if the image of the party and the
government remains good, it will gain confidence of the people," Yadav was
quoted as telling his workers in a party release.

On the election promises, he said that distribution of unemployment
allowance and 'Kanya Vidyadhan Yojna' would start soon and the promise to
provide free irrigation water would also be fulfilled.

Asking the workers to remain prepared for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections,
Yadav said the people of the state have given a historic mandate to the
Samajwadi Party which has stunned the entire nation.
