Thiruvananthapuram, May 10: Sitaram Yechury, in a dig to the clandestine alliance between the Congress and the RSS, said that the Congress should first decide what it wants as Congress's A. K Antony had said that the party is the "fulcrum of anti-communal forces".
Amid such a declaration, the party joining hands with the Right Wing operatives is ironical.
No stand for Congress
Pointing out that the Kerala government, in the past 5 years, has earned itself a name of being corrupt (which has never been the case whether it is ruled by the LDF or the UDF).
Kerala government, according to him was always a benchmark for the other governments as it was jokingly said that the Congress was not corrupt here as it had to compete with with a flawless government. However, the perception was shattered after the 2G and the CWG scam.
Make Kerala Congress-BJP free
Seeking the support of the people, Yechury said that the LDF government in power is the only answer to hypocricy. Citing that the LDF will get maximum support from the minorites communities who will not accept the present stance of the Congress government, Yechury further said that these communities know who is doing what.
Won't let anti-secularism hit the state
Furthering his stance on the footing of the alliance in Kerala, Yechury said the communal stance has worked in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh, but not in Kerala. All the parties know that and that it would be strongly opposed even if the right forces come to power.
Concluding his statement, Yechury said that right now the parties sole agenda is to win the elections unitedly, the leadership comes later.
