Agartala, Apr 6 (ANI): CPI (M) General Secretary Prakash Karat has said that pro-people economic policies will replace what they feel pro-US policies, if voted to power.

"By scrapping the economic policies implemented in our country under the pressure of America, pro-people policies are to be implemented," Karat said at a public rally here on Sunday.

Karat also reiterated his party's call of forming a non-Congress and non-BJP Government after the general elections.

"This time, after the five-year old Congress Government, we have given a slogan to defeat both the Congress and the BJP, and form an alternative secular Government," Karat added.

The communists pulled out of the Congress party-led federal United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government last year over the nuclear deal with the United States.

The Communists are spearheading a loose grouping of regional parties popularly known as the 'Third Front', which pitches itself as an alternative to Congress and BJP-led alliances. (ANI)
