“Both have indulged in corrupt practices. But unfortunately the DMK and AIADMK have failed to make any comment in Parliament on such corruption by the BJP,” he said. He questioned the Dravidian parties’ silence on issues relating to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and two BJP chief ministers of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

He wanted the Prime Minister to remove the three from power and conduct an inquiry. “BJP captured power at the Centre promising a corrupt-free government, but during the last 14 months of its rule, it has indulged in heavy corrupt practices,” he alleged. He claimed that only the CPI-M and left parties in the country were raising their voice against corruption.

Karat said the party would stage demonstrations and conduct meetings all over the country against BJP government’s “anti-farmers” policy and its “corrupt practices.”

        A great finding by a 'great' communist, who presided over the collapse of communism in India, with his expertise and backings to murder politics against real communist principles. This man also presided over a number of gruesome political killings in Kerala and continued to support the State Secretary of Kerala, whose prime task was to raise funds for CPM and continue to butcher opponents. It is surprising that he has no shame !!

            Mr Prakash Karat your CPM has sided with both DMK and AIADMK who have insutionalised corruption in every walks of life in Tamil Nadu. How DMK, AIADMK or Congress can speak abour corruption ? They are masters in that. Your party is reduced to single digit in loksabha and congress to double digit. You can not do anything to Narendra Modi and BJP. Every Indian knows Sushmaji is straight forward and she did no scam. Similarly both Shivrajji and Vasundara Raje are por and have routed Congress. If Your party and Congress are good then why Vasundara Raje and Shivrajji have won. The so called scams are done earlier during Congress time and Why no action on them ? It is all lies to spoil name of Modi and people are not fools that is why they kicked your CPM and Congress for ever. Your party has killed maximum pepole in name of political killings in Kerala and West Bengal. No other party in history of India has killed their political opponent like CPM. Do not preach either about murder or corruption. You hate BJP because of pseudo secularism which has failed miserably in India.
