CPI-M takes a dig at SP's Third Front call
New Delhi: In an indirect attack on the Samajwadi Party (SP), the CPI-M said that non-Congress and non-BJP parties should not form a new front only to share "the spoils of office".
"The non-Congress, non-BJP secular parties (should) give up their political opportunism of forming a front merely for the sake of sharing the spoils of office," the CPI-M journal "People's Democracy" said. Such a front should come up to form "a government that will implement alternative policies which will significantly improve the livelihood conditions of our people and create a `Better India' for all Indians".
The Communist Party of India-Marxist editorial did not name any political party but it followed recent calls by SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav to form a Third Front ahead of the next Lok Sabha elections. The CPI-M editorial said it was important that political struggles must be carried out to force a change in government policies.
It said that people won't get relief "merely from a non-Congress, non-BJP government.
