A day after former West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee issued an open appeal to the Congress to join hands with the Left parties to oust Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress government in the state, the CPM central leadership Sunday did not rule out the veteran’s suggestion.
The CPM Politburo merely said the leadership will take a decision at an “appropriate time”. “There is a lot of speculation over the tactics that the CPM will employ in the forthcoming elections to the state assemblies. The CPI(M)’s electoral tactics will be in accordance with the political-tactical line adopted at its 21st Party Congress. The Politburo and the Central Committee will take a decision at an appropriate time regarding electoral tactics in each of these states,” the CPM said in a statement.
