Domkal, May 2: On his second visit to West Bengal, Rahul Gandhi philippic against the Communist Party-Marxist (CPM) by accusing them of forgetting the poor, backward classes and the minorities in the state.
I am shocked. What kind of a communist government is this which forgets the poor, backward and minorities?" Rahul Gandhi said in an election rally.
