Communists rule out post-poll tie-up with Congress
Coimbatore, May 7 (ANI): Communist Party of India (Marxist) General Secretary Prakash Karat has ruled any tie up with the Congress post-polls.
"I want to tell the Congress that if you think after the elections the Left parties will bail you out, then you are living in your own dream world. That's not going to happen," said Karat at a poll rally in Coimbatore on Wednesday.
Karat said the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) was a sinking ship.
"Where is the UPA today? The UPA exists only in the form of the Congress and the Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) today. This is the sinking ship, which is the UPA. That is why, they are desperately attacking the Third Front," said Karat.
On Tuesday, Congress party's general secretary Rahul Gandhi said they could work with Left parties in the post-poll scenario.
The Communists had allied with the Congress before withdrawing support over the nuclear deal with the US. (ANI)
