Kolkata: After courting the Congress, it seems Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav is now ready to reach out to non-UPA and non-NDA parties ahead of 2014 as he held the party's national executive meet in Mamata Banerjee's land West Bengal.
Sources say the political resolution would seek a non-Congress, non-BJP alternative at the Centre before 2014 elections. The resolution will also discuss the possibility of early Lok Sabha elections in 2013 with the possibility of some UPA allies deserting Congress in the wake of a series of scams.
Sources say the party may also ask Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to constitute an independent inquiry into coalgate, since many Congress leaders and MPs are now under fire.
There is no word yet on when Mulayam or Akhilesh will meet Mamata Banerjee, but the Samjawadi Party supremo did give a hint of possible distancing from the UPA. "The country today is facing many challenges. We are facing this situation because of wrong government policies. We are not against them, but we don't support their actions," Mulayam said.
