  • Prakash Karat hopeful of forming third front Govt at the Centre with Congress support

    Published on April 29, 2014

    The CPI (M) may consider joining the Third Front government at the Centre in case prakash karatthe political formation comes to power after the ongoing 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

    The largest communist party of the country and a pivotal force in the non-Congress, non-BJP club, the CPI(M) had always rejected opportunities in the past to be a part of the Union cabinet.

    Karat, however, added that the possibility of a Third Front government will depend on the electoral fate of parties led by “Nitish Kumar (JD- U), Mulayam Singh Yadav (SP), Naveen Patanik (BJD), and others”.

    While pointing out that a strong anti-Congress sentiment prevails across the states, Karat refused to accept that BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has reinvented himself.

    “These talks of reinvention are only a tactical move to project him. The biggest apprehension is that the BJP and RSS are banking on Hindutva and communal agenda. In Varanasi and other parts of UP, their entire election strategy is based on communal polarisation,” he said.

    According to Karat, BJP’s decision to send party general secretary Amit Shah as Uttar Pradesh in-charge almost six months before Modi’s name was announced as PM candidate was also a part of this communal ploy.
