Lalita Panicker in Turning Karatwheels (September 19) exposes the CPI(M)’s hypocrisy. Karat lacks the ability to feel the pulse of the common man who needs basic necessities to sustain himself. The writer rightly points out that the state which was once a model for development is today basking in its past glory. Karat should set his house in order first and then oppose the nuclear deal with the US.
Lalita Panicker has aptly mentioned that the Left parties instead of putting a spanner in the works of the UPA and attempting to thwart the beneficial nuclear deal, would do well to clean their own stables, in Kerala and elsewhere. It is sad that sane voices among those in the Left are very few and not vocal enough. I can’t agree more with the sentiments expressed in the article.
