Brinda Karat: CD bares BJP’s mindset

Wednesday 11 April 2007

Give it a fitting reply in elections, she asks Uttar Pradesh voters

Why disparity in providing quotas in jobs, education? Maoists might have used sea route to reach Nandigram

Ranchi: Attacking the Bharatiya Janata Party over the CD controversy, Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Brinda Karat on Tuesday said it was "once again displaying its true colours."

"The CD clarifies the BJP’s mindset with regard to its communal agenda. At a time when development should be important, the BJP manifests its divisive agenda," she told a press conference here.

Charging the BJP with showing "objectionable scenes and insulting women through the CD," Ms. Karat appealed to the Uttar Pradesh electorate to give it a fitting reply in the Assembly elections.

Ms. Karat disagreed with the recent Supreme Court stay on the reservation for OBCs in higher education institutions and sought to know why there should be disparity in providing quotas in jobs and in education.

Terming judges "constitutional authorities," she called for setting up a judicial commission, to which the judiciary would be accountable.

On the Nandigram episode, she said Maoists might have used a sea route in West Bengal to reach the village and create trouble there. — PTI
