Modi is a "rabid face" of RSS, says Brinda Karat
Bangalore: CPI-M Politburo member Brinda Karat today termed BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as a "purveyor" of communal politics and said he represents the "rabid face" of RSS.
"Even Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram has a chequered track record. Modi..I don't know what is chequered about him. He is an out-and-out purveyor of communal politics and represents the face of a rabid communal RSS pracharak," she told reporters on the sidelines of a CPI-M rally when she was asked about Chidambaram's remarks on Modi's "chequered" track record in an interview.
"There is a question mark over Modi, who is facing Ishrat Jahan fake encounter and Zakia Jaffery cases in the court," she added.
Asked about the shaping up of a Third Front, Karat said people are fed up with Congress and BJP for their corruption, but the alternative has to be policy-based.
Karat said the central government should find a solution to Telangana turmoil as it was its creation.
She asked YSR Congress party President Jagan Mohan Reddy and TDP leader Chandrababu Naidu-led parties not to mislead people on Telangana and to spell out their stand on the issue, whether they were for or against it.
"My party has taken a very clear stand. We are for a united Andhra Pradesh," she said.
