CPI(M) to review UPA government's performance after polls
New Delhi, Mar 12 (UNI) The Central Committee of the CPI(M), which concluded its delibrations today, opined that the results of the assembly polls would have an impact on the national political scene and that it would review and assess the UPA government's performance after the polls.
The 85-member committee, after its two-day delibrations, preceded by a one-day Party Polit Bureau meet, however, brimmed with confidence and foresaw the victory of the LDF government in Kerala and continuation of the Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee government in West Bengal.
''The party's increased strength will definitely have more impact,''senior party leaders Sitaram Yechury and W R Wardharajan told UNI.
On the party's chief ministerial candidate for Kerala, the Left leaders said, ''it is too immature to discuss about it as the state unit will meet on March 15 to finalise the list of the condidates, followed by campaigning.'' However, Mr Yechury said that generally the office of the party secretary and the chief minister were not given to one person.
Giving reasons for the eventual downfall of the UDF in Kerala, they said the people wanted change as it found the UDF government ''non- performing''.
During the whole term, it wrangled around the chief ministership.
Indeed, this is the government that never worked even after the change of the chief minister, they said.
This fact had already been evident in the results of the 2004 Lok Sabha elctions, the local body elections and the Lok Sabha and assembly by-elections, they added.
