Kolkata, Apr 12: Lashing out at Trinamool Congress (TMC) for supporting the Maoists, Communist Party of India (Marxist) politburo member Sitaram Yechury on Sunday, Apr 11, said that Trinamool Congress' support to the Maoists was a threat to country's internal security.
"The Prime Minister has identified Maoist menace as the greatest internal security threat before the country at present. Trinamool Congress is acting against the interests of the country by providing support to the Maoists," Yechury said.
On the upcoming civic elections to 82 municipalities in May, Yechury said that the Left Front would perform well, despite the possible 'mahajot' (grand alliance) between the Congress and the Trinamool Congress to fight the civic polls.
"The Left has faced such a mahajot before. It would do well in the coming municipal polls. The Front has already started preparation for the polls," he said.
