Kolkata: Under attack from veteran leader
Somnath Chatterjee over the Left`s electoral debacle, CPI-M
general secretary Prakash Karat Sunday remained tight-lipped
about criticism of his leadership and said his party would
react to it.

"I won`t respond. My party will react (to Chatterjee`s
charge)," Karat told reporters here emerging from the two-day
state committee meeting of the CPI-M which concluded today.

"He (Chatterjee) is not in the party. So I don`t need to
react," he said when asked on the charge that he has made the
Left movement irrelevant.

Before leaving for Delhi, he said that the extended
central committee meeting of the CPI-M in Vijaywada next month
would decide on programmes against the neo-liberal policies
pursued by the Congress-led UPA government.

In a blistering attack on Karat, Chatterjee, who was
expelled by the CPI-M in July, 2008 after he refused to abide
by the party directive to resign as Lok Sabha Speaker, has
said "disastrous" policies and "misguided" actions of the
"current" leadership had resulted in the major debacle in the
2009 general elections.

The former Lok Sabha Speaker has given vent to his dismay
over the state of affairs in the CPI-M in his book titled
`Keeping the Faith: Memoirs of a Parliamentarian` to be
released later this month.
