Former Jharkhand Chief Minister and Member of Parliament Babulal Marandi has extended support to the Third Front.
In a letter to Telugu Desam Party chief Chandrababu Naidu [Images], the prominent Jharkhand leader said he supported the Front, which was a non-United Progressive Alliance and non-National Democratic Alliance option.
He said that he could not attend the Front's meeting in New Delhi [Images] due to prior poll-related commitments.
"I assure you that after the Lok Sabha elections, my party's support will be with you," the Jharkhand Vikas Manch chief said in a letter to Naidu on Sunday. Marandi represents Koderma constituency in Jharkhand.
