Praja Rajyam open to post-poll alliances

May 15, 2009 16:56 IST

Amidst reports that it is being wooed by the Congress, Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi's Praja Rajyam Party on Friday said it is keeping its doors open for post-poll alliances.

Praja Rajyam, which is expected to win a sizeable number of seats in both the Lok Sabha and Andhra Pradesh assembly, also said that the Third Front was at present a 'fractured front'.

"Any political party has to act in such a way that it should never close any doors post-elections. PRP is also doing the same thing," PRP general secretary Allu Aravind told reporters when asked whether it will align with the Congress.

Arvind also took a dig at the Third Front and said it was a 'fractured front at present as one of its members has packed and taken his baggage out of it', in an apparent reference to the TRS, which switched sides to the National Democratic Alliance recently.

There is intense speculation that the Congress is trying to reach out to Chiranjeevi to secure his support both at the state and the Centre.
