KANNUR: The CPM will take initiative to float a joint front of all Left parties in the country to fight the BJP and the corporate interests that are being promoted by the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, CPM general secretary Prakash Karat has said.
Speaking after inaugurating the Kavumbayi Memorial Building of the CPM Sreekandapuram Area Committee here on Tuesday,
Karat warned against the agenda of communalism and the ideology of Hindutwa promoted by the Narendra Modi government and the RSS.
“Only the Left forces could erect a wall of defence against communal and corporate agendas of the Modi government and the Sangh Parivar. The CPM will join hands with other Left parties and like-minded organisations for a joint fight.”
Apart from the existing Left front comprising the CPI, RSP and the Forward Bloc, more organisations would join the broad platform.
The CPM is in touch with like-minded parties in Bihar and Rajasthan, Karat disclosed. The CPM general secretary took strong exception to RSS chief Mohan Bhagavat’s statement describing Hindutwa as the ideology of the nation.
“The BJP government, driven by the ideologies of the RSS, is promoting communal and corporate interests above national interest. The communal riots in Uttar Pradesh are part of a larger agenda,” he warned.
When it comes to economic policies, the BJP government is promoting corporate interests more forcefully than the UPA Government did, he criticised.
