Non-Congress, non-BJP combine likely by Feb: Karat

The CPI-M general secretary Prakash Karat claimed that a broader picture of non-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress electoral alliance among the ‘secular’ parties will be finalised in February.

While addressing the media persons, he said, ‘The Congress party and its alliance will not be able to counter BJP and its Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. Therefore it is necessary have a secular combination force to check them.’

Since couple of years the CPI (M) and other Left parties are desperate to have a broad agreement with various non-Congress and non-BJP parties but unfortunately nothing concrete has come out so far.

Reminding that such an opposition front was earlier formed after the polls, he said, ‘We are already in touch and working on a broad, loose combination before elections at regional level.’

‘This time much before the elections on 30 October, 2013, 14 parties came together. We are in constant discussions with all parties. By beginning of February, some concrete alliance will be finalised. So that after the elections, we will be able to put together any combination we require against BJP as the Congress is not going to win,’ he said.
