Congress tells people to vote with an all India perspectiveMarch 10th, 2009 - 9:38 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Mar 10 (ANI): The Congress party, in its mouthpiece ”Sandesh”, has urged the people to be wary of electing representatives who have “let us down on earlier occasions” and vote with an “all India perspective” in the coming Lok Sabha polls.
The editorial is critical of the Third Front, which is formally scheduled to come into being on March 12.
“When the people go to vote this time they have to reflect whether they can risk the country at the hands of less experienced (people) that have let us down on earlier occasions”, it said.
The Left Parties are geared up to create a credible Third Front with Telugu Desam Party, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Janata Dal Secular.
The editorial said that the general elections in a democracy are a test of the true strength of a political party.
“Essentially it should reflect the acceptance of the policies enunciated by the party but in our country, issues of regionalism, communalism, caste and other emotive issues often sway the electorate,” the Congress said. (ANI)
