CPM Politburo Takes Stand Against Bengal Pact: What It Means

The electoral pact between the CPM-led Left Front and the Congress in West Bengal was not in consonance with the party line, the CPM Politburo concluded Monday, after two days of heated debate. The conclusion meant that Prakash Karat’s anti-Congress line of thought prevailed, deepening the schism between the Karat camp and the pro-cooperation Sitaram Yechury and the Bengal leadership. “…The electoral tactics evolved in West Bengal was not in consonance with the Central Committee decision based on the political-tactical line of the party, which states that there shall be no alliance or understanding with the Congress party,” a statement by the Politburo said. – See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-news-india/bengal-polls-cpm-congress-sitaram-yechury-prakash-karat-politburo-election-results-2016-2826541/#sthash.I3oP60WR.dpuf

    Bengal Unit of the CPIM should declare itself free from the South Indian dominated Central committee. In fact, Jyoti Basu should have done this in 1996; in that case he could be the Prime Minister of India. South Indians only like South Indians. An ignorant farmer was preferred to them than a Bengali.

      What you have done in last 35 years is the result of the day. your education policy has made Bengal limping, your industrial policy has made a barren land of industry, your so called pro poor policy has made Bengal corrupted in all dimensions, your leaders are now with million, you have people's mind set is "not to work but to get ry". you made the people with goondaism, lt;br/gt;politics in every level for unjustified things.lt;br/gt;time is the answer. lt;br/gt;Bengal is turning into Bihar where bullets are the answer of power. the quality of education in all govt. aided school has gone down, Bengal was at the top of quality education in India 60s, today it is in lowest category.
