CPI(M) will maintain pressure on Centre, says Yechury

Monday 10 January 2005, by DAM*Marcus

KOLKATA, JAN. 9. Though satisfied with the implementation of the common minimum programme by the United Progressive Alliance Government so far, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) feels that a lot more remains to be done.

The CPI(M) Polit Bureau member, Sitaram Yechury, said today that the party was keeping up pressure on the Centre to implement "what remains to be done with speed." He was speaking at the CPI(M) central committee meeting here.

Mr. Yechury said the CPI(M) decided to go in for seat-sharing with the Rashtriya Janata Dal in Bihar for the coming Assembly elections to resist the communal forces in the State. As the RJD was a major force in Bihar, "it is not possible to fight communal forces in the State in isolation from the RJD."

Three seats have been allocated for the CPI(M) in the first phase.

On the question of the Congress deciding to forge an electoral arrangement with the Jharkhand Mukhti Morcha, he said the move would not affect the CPI(M)’s relation with the Congress at the national level.
