CPI on Saturday released its manifesto for the coming Lok Sabha elections, promising that it will work for providing a non-Congress and non-BJP alternative at the Centre that would carry forward the "glorious" tradition of anti-imperialism and secular polity.

The manifesto, released by CPI General Secretary AB Bardhan in New Delhi, said its aim is to "halt the ruling classes from pursuing a disastrous course" like the neo-liberal policies of the Congress and BJP's "communal agenda".

"The CPI and the Left is joining the electoral battle with the slogan of providing a non-Congress and non-BJP alternative that should carry forward the glorious tradition of anti-imperialism, secular polity and independent economic policies and social justice to all," the manifesto said.

The manifesto also called for a larger presence of the CPI and Left as a whole in 15th Lok Sabha.
