The CPI(M) today alleged that the Congress was helping the BJP-RSS by carrying out campaigns against the Left party in Kerala.

Stating that the saffron combine was running a “hate-filled” campaign against her party, CPI(M) politburo member Brinda Karat asked Congress president Rahul Gandhi to spell out his party’s stand on Kerala.

Gandhi had earlier asked the CPI(M), which is heading the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) coalition in Kerala, to come clean on its fight against the BJP and the “fascist forces” in the country.

It was very important that the Left party, which was in power in Kerala, made its position clear on fighting the BJP at the national level, the Congress president had said in Thiruvananthapuram last week.

Seeking to counter him, Karat said the BJP-RSS was running a “toxic and hate-filled, non-stop campaign against the CPI-M and killing the cadre of the Left party” in the southern state.

“Why? Because they (the BJP) see us as the main barrier against them (for their expansion in Kerala). Where does the Congress stand? They have been helping the BJP-RSS by their anti-CPI(M) campaigns, which are their main focus,” she told PTI.

“Let Mr Gandhi concentrate on stopping his party leaders from defecting to the BJP as they are doing in almost every state,” Karat said.
