T Varadarajan lauds CPI(M)'s poll Performance
Vijayawada, May 14 (UNI) CPI (M) politburo member T Varadarajan today said the results of the recently concluded assembly elections in five states had given a boost to the party and marginalised the communal forces.
Addressing the opening day session of the two-day Andhra Pradesh state party meeting, which began here today, he said the communal forces had become politically irrelevant and the allegation that the party had been winning the West Bengal elections due to bogus votes had proved to be false propaganda by some political parties and media.
Mr Varadarajan said the fact that CPI(M) won a seventh successive term in West Bengal, regained power in Kerala, improved its strength from six to nine seats in Tamil Nadu assembly and opened its account in Assam with two seats showed the party had gained major ground.
Criticising the roll of Election Commission in West Bengal and Kerala for ''its work beyond its limits'', he said the party would take up the issue at the national level.
Pointing out the LDF's victory in Kerala, in the stronghold areas of Muslim League, he said that it all happened due to strict implementation of pro-people policies by the CPI(M).
CPI(M) state secretary B V Raghavulu said that the party was not against the Andhra government's move to obtain the World Bank's loan for the completion of pending projects but was against certain bank's directions that were harmful for the state.
