Congress cannot form government on its own: YechuryMay 3rd, 2009 - 5:53 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, May 3 (IANS) Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) politburo member Sitaram Yechury Sunday said the Congress cannot form a government on its own after the general elections.
“After three phases of election, the Congress has realised that it cannot form the government this time at the centre on its own strength,” Yechury said here.
The possibility of a non-Congress non-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government is growing by the day, he said.
Yechury said that the Left-led third alternative could bring reforms in policy making initiatives so the ongoing economic recession could be tackled in India.
Asked whether the CPI-M will join the government if the Third Front comes to power, Yechuri said: “That will only be decided after polls. We cannot say anything now. Our party’s central committee will take the final decision on the matter.”
