Communists to take final call on alliances after pollsMarch 30th, 2009 - 8:01 pm ICT by ANI
Siliguri/Mumbai, Mar 30 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has said that Communists have pledged support to non-Congress, non-BJP Government, but would take final call after poll outcome.
“Till now, our attempt is to form a non-Congress and non-BJP Government. After elections, we will decide finally,” said Bhattacharjee after a public meeting in Siliguri on Sunday.
Communists-led by the CPI(M), were extending outside support to the Central coalition government led by Congress party until last year when they pulled out on the issue of India-US civil nuclear deal.
In Mumbai, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief slammed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.”We have never seen that a woman incited a mob to kill people and participated in the violence. By including such people in the Ministry, Modi, we don’t want to repeat Gujarat in our state,” said Pawar.
Meanwhile, the Congress party said that its sitting MP and actor-turned-politician Govinda would not contest the upcoming election.
“The decision is yet to be taken but Govinda has not pledged support to any other candidate. He himself has said that he would not participate in the elections but he would be available for campaign in whole of Maharashtra,” said Ashok Chavan, Maharashtra Chief Minister. (ANI)
