CPM politburo member S Ramachandran Pillai has said that the Left parties, including the CPM, have been trying to form a third front in the Centre. He was speaking after inaugurating the Kerala Raksha March led by CPM state general secretary Pinarayi Vijayan at Vayalar martyr dome here on Saturday.

Pillai said that the Congress and the BJP follow the same policies and prospects. “Both the parties are following the same foreign  and domestic policies. So, how can they save the millions of poor people in the country?” he asked. He said that Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi are protecting the interests of the US.

“The multinational companies owned by American corporates are exploiting the third world countries. The ruling UPA government and the Opposition BJP support these policies. Hence, the Left parties are seeking the collation of various regional parties having democratic and secular credentials,” he said. Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan, who presided over the meeting, said that the  life of common people is at stake owing to corruption and price rise of essential commodities.

“The price of essential commodities, petrol, LPG and other goods are continuously increasing. The government has no control over price rise, and the Sangaparivar organisations are vying to utilise this situation at the cost of poor people. So, an anti-Congress and anti-BJP front at the Centre is the only alternative for the welfare of the people,” he said.
