January 30th, 2012 - 8:48 pm ICT by IANS  

Bharatiya Janata Party Agartala, Jan 30 (IANS) China will dominate the world economy and the US will come down to second position by 2025, Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) general secretary Prakash Karat said here Monday.

Addressing the internal session of the CPI-M’s four-day Tripura state conference, Karat said: “By 2025, China would become number one nation in the world economy and the US would drop to the second position from the present number one position.”

“Realising its future economic fate, the US has been trying to grab oil and natural gas resources of West Asia, Arab countries and others,” said Karat in his speech, a copy of which was given to the media.

Criticising both Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Karat said the CPI-M “has to be make stronger all across the country not only in Tripura, West Bengal and Kerala”.

“CPI-M should be turned into such a position so that the party can give a leadership of all the like minded parties.”

The CPI-M general secretary claimed that the Marxist party’s strength has been increased in the trade union bodies. “With our initiative all the central trade unions become united.”

“CPI-M has initiated a massive rectification move and taking lessons from the set back of West Bengal poll defeat. Gap between the party and the people in that state had widened,” Karat said adding that despite massive attacks from the ruling parties, the party cadres did not leave the organisation.

Besides Karat, CPI-M politburo members Sitaram Yechury, Manik Sarkar and Brinda Karat were among the top leaders who addressed the internal sessions of the conference which aims to make the party more pro-people and strong, and to train the party cadres in ideological skills.

For the first time, all the top CPI-M leaders have remained present in all the four days in the 20th Tripura state conference of the party.

CPI-M spokesman Gautam Das told reporters that the conference has also finalised strategies to install the seventh Left Front government in Tripura in the next year’s assembly elections.
