Jaswant's expulsion a 'sign' of BJP's collapse: Karat

CPI-M on Wednesday said the expulsion of Jaswant Singh from BJP over the controversy triggered by his book on Pakistan founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah was a "sign of collapse" of the saffron party.

"BJP has now expelled one of its national leaders from the party. This is a sign of the collapse of the party after its drubbing in the Lok Sabha polls", CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat said at a party rally in Kannur on Wednesday evening.

With the electorate rejecting BJP's "communal policies", the people would be increasingly reposing their faith in the Left, he claimed.

In the prevailing circumstances, it was the responsibility of Left parties to live up to the expectations of the masses, he added.
