Senior Bharatiya Janata Party [ Images ] leader L K Advani [ Images ] on Sunday wrote in his blog that a non-Congress, non-BJP prime minister supported by any of these two parties is "feasible" in the next general elections but cautioned that this may not be a very stable dispensation.
Advani wrote, "A non-Congress, non-BJP Prime Minister heading a government supported by one of these two principal parties is, however, feasible. This has happened in the past also."
However, he warned that such governments have never lasted long.
"There has been stability at the Centre only when the government has had either a Congress or a BJP prime minister," he said.
"The shape which national polity has acquired in the past two and a half decades makes it practically impossible for any government to be formed in New Delhi [ Images ] which does not have the support either of the Congress or of the BJP. A third front government, therefore, can be ruled out," he said.
Advani quoted a recent interaction with two Cabinet ministers who expressed the apprehension that neither the Congress nor the BJP-led coalitions may get a clear majority in the 16th Lok Sabha election.
He said that the Congress ministers felt that in such a scenario a Third Front government may be formed which would be "extremely harmful" for stability and also national interest.
