Left parties not to support Congress-led GovernmentMay 14th, 2009 - 11:08 pm ICT by ANI
Kolkata, May 14 (ANI): Forward Bloc General Secretary Ashok Ghosh on Thursday said that the Left parties would not support a Congress-led Government at the Centre.
“In no circumstances will the four Left parties - the CPM, the Communist Party of India (CPI), Forward Bloc and the Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) will support a Congress-led government at the Centre from outside. If necessary, we will sit in the opposition. This is our decision,” Ashok Ghosh told reporters here.
When asked if the Congress emerged as the single largest party would his party abstain from voting in the event of a trust voter in the Parliament to enable such a government to survive to prevent the BJP from coming to power, Ghosh said the stand of the Left parties so far was not to support a Congress-led government.
Gosh, however, added that he could not say anything what would happen in a changed scenario. (ANI)
