CPI(M) basic secretary Sitaram Yechury Friday dominated out the opportunity of allying with Trinamool Congress (TMC) in West Bengal however the Left get together is not going to hesitate to affix fingers with opposition events, together with TMC nationally to defeat BJP.
There are “contradictions” within the method of the 2 events in preventing BJP and there’s no query of an alliance with the ruling TMC in Bengal because it has inflicted atrocities on grassroot degree CPI(M) employees, he stated.
At the identical time he stated, “No other political party can be compared to BJP which is trying to destroy the Constitution of the country … BJP as the most dangerous threat to the idea of India”, Mr Yechury advised a press convention right here, “There is no question of joining hands with TMC because of the contradiction on the ground. The TMC attacks our workers at the ground level. Why are there attacks on the red party volunteers and people who demand that vaccination be done impartially? If such things happen, there will be resistance”.
“However, nationally we have already identified BJP as the main enemy and no party can be compared with it. Nationally we will continue our participation in the unity of secular opposition parties.
“Both the TMC supremo and I had joined numerous opposition conferences the place I had ready the opposition draft and he or she had signed it,” he said.
Mr Yechury, who was in the city to take part in the state committee meeting, said the political situations at the state and the Centre are not the same.
“In Kerala we’re preventing in opposition to the Congress however on the nationwide degree we’re preventing in opposition to the BJP. So political selections are taken based mostly on concrete conditions,” he said.
The communist party, which has been pushed to the margin of Bengal politics after failing to open its account in the last assembly poll in the state it had ruled for 34 years till 2011, is divided on whether to join hands with TMC or not to fight against BJP in the state, political observers said.
The party is faced with a similar question in Tripura where TMC hopes to gain ground by fighting against the BJP government.
The CPI (M)-led Left Front is the main opposition in the northeastern state.
“Those who had been in TMC in Tripura have joined BJP. Later a few of them grew to become ministers within the BJP cupboard. The TMC doesn’t have any base in Tripura. It is the Left which is preventing in opposition to the saffron onslaught there,” Yechury said.
Admitting that coinage of terms such as “BJMOOL” equating BJP and TMC during the West Bengal assembly polls was a mistake and the party”s central leadership has taken note of it, Mr Yechury said.
“It was determined by the CPI(M) central committee that its major goal was the BJP. Even then equating the 2 (BJP and TMC) was flawed. The central committee mentioned the problem and stated it was flawed. The state committee too stated it was flawed,” he said.
The CPI-M Parliamentary group leader said the COVID-19 mismanagement by the central government and the virtual destruction of the country’s economy by its policies is causing severe misery to the people.
He blamed the BJP government for its obdurate refusal to discuss the Pegasus spyware surveillance issue and for displaying an “unprecedented brazen refusal” to be accountable to the Parliament.
“Instead of answering the questions, the federal government tried to flee any accountability and even evaded answering the problem within the Parliament,” he said.
Meanwhile, the CPI(M) state committee has proposed to set an age-limit of 60 for entry in it.
“There is a proposal that after the following state convention later this 12 months the higher age restrict for entry into the state committee will likely be fastened at 60. Suppose a frontrunner has attained 60, then he/she is not going to be eligible for entry to the state committee. For current members if a frontrunner has attained the age of 72, then he/she will likely be dropped from the state unit,” a senior CPI(M) chief stated on situation of anonymity.
