KOLLAM: Socialist Unity Centre of India (SUCI) central committee member Krishna Chakraborthy has said that in the name of forming a Third Front, the CPM is joining hands with all casteist, parochial, communal and divisive forces.

   Addressing a news conference at the Press Club here on Wednesday, Chakraborthy said that the proposed Third Front formed with the sole intention of sharing power was not only opportunistic but also with ominous portents and dangerous consequences. The CPM-led governments in West Bengal, Kerala and Tripura are also pursuing policies of globalisation and even resorting to suppressing mass movements by hiring criminals. Though the CPM is campaigning against the growing strategic partnership between India and Israel, its government in West Bengal has entered into many agreements with Israel and business concerns in that country, the SUCI leader said.

   All major parties, including the CPM, are raising the slogan of development, which has been proved beneficial only to the capitalists in the country. SUCI is the only party approaching the electorate with the slogan of building up mighty mass movements on the edifice of higher moral, ethical values and culture, which is the crying need of the hour, he said.

SUCI contesting in 40 seats:  Krishna Chakraborthy said that his party had fielded candidates in 40 Lok Sabha constituencies spread over 12 states. In West Bengal, the Trinamool Congress will support the SUCI candidate in one seat out of the 10 it is contesting. Both the parties had associated with mass movements of people in Nandigram and Singur which defeated the pro-Tata, pro-Salim Group policies of the CPM-led government in West Bengal, he said.

   In Kerala, the party has fielded candidates in Kozhikode (D.Surendranath), Chalakudy (P.S.Babu), Kottayam (Mini K Philip), Mavelikkara (K.S.Sasikala), Pathanamthitta (V.P.Kochumone), Alappuzha (S.Seethilal), Kollam (S.Radhakrishnan) and Thiruvananthapuram (M.Shajarkhan). The SUCI will support the Independent candidates Dr Azad in Ponnani and Mollampally Mary in Ernakulam, he said.
