Patna, May 30 (UNI) The result of Karnataka Assembly election bore an ample testimony to the fact that the Congress and its so called secular allies were incapable of containing the growing influence of the BJP and other saffron brigades in the country.
General secretary of the CPI(ML) Deepankar Bhattacharya told newspersons here that verdict of the people in Karntaka Assembly election had exposed the pseudo-secularism of the Congress and political opportunism of the JD(S) as both political parties had to lick dust in the recent electoral hustings there.
Mr Bhattacharya announced that his party would launch nationwide agitational programme from June 25 to July one to expose the failure of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre and assault on democracy by the vested interests.
Referring to the thrashing of BJP MLA by state Food and Civil Supply Minister Narendra Singh during a function in Jamui recently, he described the incident as the most unfortunate and blot on democratic society in the country.
'' How Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar claims to provide good governance in the state when a senior minister of his Cabinet was himself involved in such ugly incident, '' he wondered and said the NDA government in Bihar only indulged in making tall claims and doing nothing to fulfill it on ground level.
Mr Bhattacharya dubbed the claim of the Nitish Kumar government on providing succour to 'maha-dalits' as a ploy to divide the oppressed section of the society.
On ground level, nothing was being done to improve the lot of the oppressed section as most of the people belonging to this category had been exluded from Below Poverty List (BPL) during the present dispensation, he added.
The CPI(ML) leader claimed that his party was organising issue -based rallies and conferences like price rise and floods at different places in the state, while other political parties were organising caste-based rallies to exploit these for political gains.
