CPI-M seeks to unify non-BJP, non-Congress parties
Kolkata: The CPI-M on Sunday said it will try to unify non-Congress and non-BJP parties in order to provide alternative policies to the country.
"Right now there is a process of political churning, a process of political alignment and realignment is going on," party leader Sitaram Yechury told the media here.
"What shape it will take is a future thing, but what we want is unification of non-Congress and non-BJP parties for providing alternative policies which the country needs," he added.
He ridiculed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee`s call for a Federal Front.
"A front is not formed by merely announcing it. We have seen such experiments in the past, and they are neither sustainable nor do they inspire people`s confidence.
"May be it`s a ploy to divert attention from her government`s shortcomings or to enhance her importance in national politics," Yechury said.
He said there were two streams of Left in the country -- Communist Left and Socialist Left.
"If these two unite, we can become a potent political force," he said.
"The Left parties are meeting in Delhi in July. We will not only discuss alternative policies with non-Congress non-BJP parties but will announce our policies," Yechury added.
