Written by: Staff

New Delhi, May 16: Yielding to the harsh reality that Congress and its allies have won the electoral battle, the Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI-M) general secretary has on Saturday, May 16 said that Left has suffered a 'major setback' in the election.

The results show that the Left is likely to win under 25 seats as opposed to the 2004 election results wherein they won above 60 seats.

Reading from a prepared statement, Karat said, "The CPI-M and the Left parties have suffered a major setback in these elections. This necessitates a serious examination of the reasons for the Party's poor performance."

He added that CPI-M will remain with the non-Congress and non-BJP secular parties.
