CPI hits at CPI(M) for functioning unilaterally
Kolkata: Major Left Front partner CPI on Monday
severely criticised the CPI(M) for taking "unilateral
decisions" on important issues like land acquisition at Singur
despite protests by other partners and said the LF should
really work as a front and not be run as a single party
CPI general secretary AB Bardhan addressing a press
conference at the end of the party`s three-day review session
by the state council voiced displeasure at the unilateral
functioning of the CPI-M in the erstwhile government ignoring
opinions of other partners.
"Despite protests by Left Front partners, sanctions were
given to the SEZ and chemical hubs (at Nandigram) and
agricultural land was taken away from farmers for construction
of the Tata Motors small car factory," Bardhan said.
The veteran leader regretted that the LF did not
intervene when there was unrest by labourers and farmers
during land acquisition at Singur and no steps were taken to
Bardhan said the Left Front should function
`appropriately` and `constructively` and should support
correct steps of the government and oppose what is not in the
interest of people.
He alleged that nearly 70 Left Front workers had been
killed in post-poll violence and warned that the Front "will
have to resist" the attacks.
