THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Reacting to the RSP national leadership’s stand that their ultimate aim was Left unity, CPM politburo member M A Baby said that if the leadership was sincere they should have quit the UDF fold and stand independent if they had any problem in coming back to the LDF.
Speaking to ‘Express’, Baby said that the RSP national leadership had not approved the state unit’s decision to move out of the LDF and join the UDF fold.
He pointed out that RSP’s national political line was to oppose bourgeois leadership.
When they were with the LDF, they were opposing the Congress. Now, the Congress party’s position has been replaced by the BJP.
He said that while BJP Govt is allowing 49 percent FDI, the Congress cannot oppose it.
BJP is asking the Congress party whether it was their Bill and how they could oppose it. At this stage, the Congress instead opposing the Bill has asked for referring it to the select committee. In such a situation, RSP’s N K Premachandran has to take a stand.
Baby said in similar situations, the RSP will have to face difficulties if they continued to support the Congress.
