Chennai, Aug 24 (UNI) Tata Group chief Ratan Tata should pull out his Singur Project in West Bengal in the larger national interest of defeating ''anti-national politics'' of the Communists, Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy said today.
In a statement here, Dr Swamy accused the CPI(M) of ''running with the hares and hunting with the hounds in national politics, for narrow and selfish purpose of furthering the grip of Communist movement in the country.'' When development projects like computerising banks and financial services in the national economy was considered in the interest of economic efficiency, the CPI(M) opposed it tooth and nail,he alleged.
''But, when capitalists like Tatas serve Communist interests as in Singur, they are welcomed,'' he alleged.
Dr Swamy said Mr Tata should know that if the Communists consolidate their power at the Centre, 'the first head to roll would be his.' ''Therefore, Mr Tata should not undertake any project to further the economic development in Communist pockets. He should instead pull out from Singur,'' he said.
