Cong would support the Left: Yechuri
CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechuri said the Congress would have to support the Left in the centre even as the two were fighting each other in LS polls in Kerala.
Sharply criticising the ruling united democratic front in Kerala, CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechuri said the government was hand in glove with the 'fascist forces' in the state.
Asking the voters to cast their votes in favour of the left parties to help them form a secular progressive government at the Centre he said the whole country was keenly watching the poll outcome from Kerala where the CPI-M led left parties were fighting Congress as their main rivals.
The Congress will have to extend support to a Left Front-led secular government at the Centre as both BJP and Congress led coalition would not be able to form a viable alternative in the prevailing political scenario, CPI-M politburo member Sitaram Yechuri said on Saturday.
"In the emerging political situation in the country, only a secular government led by left parties can form a government at the Centre while Congress will be forced to extend support to it as neither the BJP nor Congress led fronts can offer a viable alternative," Yechuri told a public meeting here.
The economic policies of the BJP and Congress were more or less similar and the left parties would not be able to support the Congress on differing issues, he maintained.
Burning issues like growing corruption and communalism had been the hallmark of the BJP, he alleged.
