NEW DELHI: With BJP’s massive win in UP, CPI(M) said that the massive mandate the party has received is dangerous for the country as it will encourage the brand of Hindutva politics which is harmful for the nation.
The Left party said that BJP’s win in UP has been accomplished by a mix of rank communal appeal and by putting together a wide ranging caste coalition.
“It was this combination that propelled Narendra Modi and the BJP in Lok Sabha elections in the state and that momentum has been maintained,” said a statement issued by the party.
While acknowledging the massive mandate that the BJP has received, it also has implications that are dangerous for the country as it will encourage the brand of Hindutva politics which is divisive and harmful for the country.
The party further said that the BJP has also registered success with a big win in Uttarakhand and dislodging the Congress government.
“It however, suffered a setback in Punjab where the Akali-BJP alliance has suffered a big defeat with the Congress winning a clear majority,” the party added.
