With Those Who Advocate Alternate Policies

Prakash Karat told media persons in Varanasi that CPI(M) will move only with those who would stand for alternative policies in the elections. Otherwise the Party will fight separately. In response to questions on Congress and BJP propping up prime ministerial candidates, Karat said, Congress and BJP taken together, have got less than 50 percent votes in last two elections. They will not determine everything in the coming elections. He also said CPI(M) was trying to expand its political influence in states other than traditional bases and will work harder in the coming days.
