CPI backs Nitish decision to return relief money
Patna: Backing Bihar Chief Minister`s
decision to return the aid money given by his Gujarat
counterpart Narendra Modi to the victims of Kosi river flood,
CPI today suggested that Nitish Kumar should sever ties with
communal BJP ahead of the assembly polls in the state.
"It is high time that Nitish Kumar severed ties with the
communal BJP ... It is the lust for power that has kept JD(U)
and BJP together so far in Bihar," CPI national secretary Atul
Kumar Anjan and state secretary B N Lal said supporting Kumar
in returning Rs five crore aid to Modi did not mean that the
party had entered into electoral alliance with JD(U).
Likewise it had not entered into any poll alliance with
RJD-LJP though CPI had supported the combine`s candidates in
the recently concluded biennial elections to Rajya Sabha.
The two CPI leaders said the Left parties would be
together contesting 150 out of total 243 assembly seats in
Bihar and a dialogue was already on between the party, CPI(M),
CPI-ML (Liberation), Fowrad Bloc and RSP for seat adjustment.
The CPI has identified 60 seats which it would contest on
its own in case of Left alliance did not take shape in Bihar,
Anjan and Lal demanded that the Centre issue a white
paper on Bhopal gas tragedy.
"Congress owes an apology to the nation for providing
safe passage to Union Carbide CEO Warren Anderson," Anjan said
adding alleged that the head of Bhopal Memorial Trust Hospital
A M Ahmadi was a `conspirator` as he had diluted the charges
in the gas tragedy case as the then chief justice of India.
