Hyderabad, Mar 24 (UNI) The much hyped 'Third Front,' a Left and Democratic alternative and the separate Talangana issues were placed in the CPI's draft political resolution moved by party General Secretary A B Bardhan today at its 20th national conference.
Moving the draft political resolution here, Mr Bardhan, in his two-hour marathan speech, said the Communists have to intensify efforts to build a Left and Democratic alternative to both Congress and the BJP. The alternative could emerge only through the broad-based mass movements and struggles based on alternative socio-economic policies.
While emphasizing the need to conduct sustainable struggles of the working class, he said the party would take into account the other social realities and launch special initiatives to unite Dalits, Adivasis and Minorities, particularly Muslims.
Recalling the role played by the CPI in formulating the Common Minimum Programme (CMP), NREGP and the Right To Information (RTI), Mr Bardhan said the Left would not allow the Nuclear Deal that affects the country's sovereignty and independent foreign policy.
After Mr Bardhan's speech, CPI national council secretary D Raja placed the political review report in the Congress, and said the report reviewed the national and internatioinal developments during the past three years in the context of political tactics adopted at Chandigarh party Congress.
While addressing the press, official spokesperson of the Congress Shameem Faizee said the separate Telangana issue was also included in the draft resolution supporting the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.
'The demand for carving out a separate state of Telengana has grown among the people of the region. Taking note of this growing demand, the CPI supports the formation of Telengana,' Mr Faizee added.
