A day after he laid down office, former Lok Sabha speaker Somnath Chatterjee on Friday asserted that communism was no political party's "monopoly" and said he continued to be a comrade.

"Communism is no party's monopoly. I am still a communist," the veteran politician, who was expelled from the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M), told reporters in New Delhi.

Asked if he was still a comrade, the former speaker laughed and said: "Even you are a comrade."
