CPI(M): Withdrawal of support from UPA on nuke deal was rightJune 22nd, 2009 - 10:08 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, June 22 (ANI): The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Monday said that that its decision to withdraw support to the United Progressive Alliance government on the nuclear deal issue last year was a correct decision.
CPI (M) General Secretary Prakash Karat, having analyzed the Election results, said that people of the country actually rejected the Bharatiya Janata Party, which benefited the Congress party in the elections.
However, Karat conceded shortcomings in the functioning of government, panchayats and municipalities in West Bengal. He admitted that certain wrong trends in party organisation, disunity among party leadership and graft case against Kerala former minister cited as reasons for CPI(M)’s debacle in Kerala.
Meanwhile, opposing the Government’s banning the CPI (Maoists), Karat said such a step would not serve any purpose.
On Monday, the Government banned the CPI-Maoist under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, calling it a terrorist organisation.
The decision was taken at a high-level meeting. (ANI)
