Slamming Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for his alleged role in the ‘massacre’ of minority community members, CPM leader Gunasekaran asked, “How can people elect a person responsible for the killings as the Prime Minster of India?”

The TN CPM executive council member was speaking on the need for an alternative, non-BJP and non-Congress regime at the Centre. Gunasekaran said it was the Vajpayee regime which started selling public sector units and it was the policies of the then BJP government which resulted in hike in petrol and diesel prices. The CPM leader said Modi government, which makes tall claims on development of Gujarat, forcibly acquired agriculture land and gave it to big corporates. The health sector looks backward in that State, he said. Gunasekaran was equally vehement in his attack on Manmohan Singh-led Congress government, which he claimed had never bothered about common man. “The big corporates were offered huge tax concessions and benefits while the common man was burdened with price rise of essential commodities,” he said. The CPM leader said people should reject Congress, which was responsible for making their living difficult.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Naryanasamy also launched a scathing attack on Modi. He said Modi has been criticising Congress party as he wanted publicity for himself. “Modi is not a fit candidate for the post of PM and Rahul Gandhi is the apt person for the post,” the Union Minister said.
