Coimbatore, Apr 1 (UNI) The 19th Congress of the CPI(M) today declared that it would not enter into any alliance or be part of a United Front with the Congress, while continuing to adopt tactics for isolating and defeating the BJP and taking initiatives for the formation of a third alternative.

Adopting a resolution to this effect, the CPI(M) congress said the party differentiated between the BJP and the Congress, considering the latter as a secular bourgeois party, though it often vacillated when the communal forces launched an offensive.

''The party will continue to adopt tactics for isolating and defeating the BJP. It will not enter into any alliance or be a part of United Front with the Congress,'' the resolution, unanimously adopted at the Congress, said.

The much-awaited political resolution was adopted after party General Secretary Prakash Karat replied to the discussions and senior leader Sitaram Yechuri placed a report on the amendments received from the delegates.

In all, 304 amendments were suggested, of which 46 were accepted by the steering committee. All the amendments sought to improve formulations and strengthen the draft.
