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
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.
