Kolkata: After keeping low following warning from the party, CPI(M) leader Abdur Rezzak Mollah again took it to task on Saturday for 'wrong policies' and said it must be ready for more losses in future.

"The party should be prepared to face more humiliation and concede more losses. For the wrongdoings and wrong policies by a handful leaders, we lost the people's faith and the assembly election," Mollah, a former minister said at a meeting of party's peasant wing Pradeshik Krishak Sabha.

Mollah, who was re-elected from the Canning (East) constituency and is the Patsy's whip in the House, asked "should we accept what only a few of our leaders advocated about land acquisition?"

The former minister who was the first CPI(M) leader to support the Singur Rehabilitation and Development Bill, 2011, said his repeated caution to the Left Front about its land land acquisition policy, went unheeded.

"I never supported the previous government's land acquisition policy which distanced us from the masses and cost us dearly in the election," he said.

Without naming the Tatas, Mollah said "the party brought disaster by following the terms of an industrialist.

The veteran CPI(M) leader also said that attacks on them should be resisted and the rights of farmers upheld.

The CPI(M) state secretariat member was twice censured for openly criticising party leaders like former chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and former commerce and industry minister Nirupam Sen.
