THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: “Parted couples can’t stay together in a house. The wife should either get remarried or move away,” Congress spokesperson M M Hassan said.
He was referring to the feud between the two communist parties, while addressing the media here on Monday.
Both the parties had conducted their state conferences so that they could sling mud at each other. While Prakash Karat and A B Bardhan were advocating communist unity, Pinarayi Vijayan and C K Chandrappan were busy locking horns with each other, he accused.
The veteran congressman felt that public have gained nothing out of the two party conferences. Instead the conferences turned out to be venues for the leaders of the two parties to air their dispute. “The two events contributed nothing for the progress and development of the state,” he opined.
He added that mud slinging was held by the two parties by keeping the red flag in front.
He also said that he was not surprised to see a corporate party like CPM seeking the help of event management firm to organise party events.
But the Congress spokesperson diluted his anti-communist rhetoric towards the end of his talk by saying that Congress party always shared soft corner towards both communist parties.
“We are not allergic to CPM or CPI. They had supported Congress-led governments in the centre,” he added.
