Patna: Lok Janshakti Party chief Ramvilas Paswan on Thursday asserted that the UPA was “not inimical” to the Left parties as they wanted them to be with secular forces.
“Hum log kabhi bhi left ke virodh mein nahin hain (we are never inimical to the Left parties)... Hum hamesha chahte hain ki Left secular forces ke saath rahe (we always want that the Left parties be with secular forces),” the union minister for Steel, Chemicals and Fertlisers told reporters here.
Paswan was reacting to RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s statement that doors were open for a post-poll alliance with the Left in the event of the Congress-led UPA not being in a position to form a government.
To another question, Paswan said, “no talks have taken place with the Left leaders so far on government-formation at the Centre.”
