CPI-M has serious political, ideological contradictions:Union Minister

published on March 10, 2007


KANNUR: The CPI (M) has turned out to be a party having serious political and ideoloical contradictions for adopting double standards and favouring pro-rich and imperialistic stance in the states it ruled, Union Minister of State for Overseas Indian Affairs and Congress Leader Vayalar Ravi said.

The CPI-M had reversed its pro-poor stand by facilitating major companies by setting up Special Economic Zones by taking away land of marginal farmers in West Bengal and accepting ADB loans against which the party had unleashed series of protests while in opposition. This is a clear cut instance of its double standards, Ravi said.

The CPI-M which opposed tooth and nail industrial majors like Tata and Birla and availing ADB loans maintaining that such steps went against interest of the poor, had now exposed its duel face by extending them whole-hearted support in total disregard to commonman’s interest, thus becoming the most opportunist political party in the country, the Minister said.

CPI-M had also exposed its fascist face by unleashing series of attacks and threats against judicial bodies, which were considered to be the last resort of justice for commonman in a democratic setup.

He refuted the claims by the CPI-M that the UPA’s Common Minimum Programme was being influenced by the Left parties and exhorted the youth Congress activists to wage a relentless struggle to expose the double-standard of the CPI-M.
