THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Disowning the electoral alliance it has formed with the Congress in the West Bengal assembly elections, former  general secretary Prakash Karat said that the electoral tactical line in Bengal was not in conformity with the political tactical line of the party congress and the decision of the Central Committee.

''The decision has to be rectified and the Central Committee in its meeting has decided not to have any understanding with the Congress in the future,'' he said here. Karat was here to attend the state committee meet.

Karat also mentioned that there was no lack of clarity before the assembly elections in Bengal and the Central committee had made it clear in February itself that there will be no understanding with the Congress but had only sought the cooperation of all like minded parties to defeat the Trinamool Congress.

Coming out against the ruling Trinamool Congress  for unleashing violence against party  workers and party offices in Bengal, Karat said that the party would organise a country wide agitation in the first week of August against the atrocities and violence unleashed by the Trinamool Congress. ''There is an attempt to eliminate the party in West Bengal,'' he said.
