CPIM All India General Secretary Sitaram Yechury admitted on Wednesday that CPM’s alliance with Congress in West Bengal has failed.
In Agartala, he said, “Even if this alliance fails in West Bengal, it will not fail in Tripura”.
It can be noted that Congress and CPIM have already circulated joint petitions for the upcoming assembly elections.
Discussions are also going on about the electoral compromise. Sitaram Yechury, CPIM politburo member Prakash Karat and Tripura’s former CM Manik Sarkar attended the 2-day important meeting of the CPM state committee on electoral reconciliation and candidate selection.
Sitaram Yechury has made it clear that the CPM’s sole aim is to oust the BJP. After the 2-day state committee meeting, CPIM state secretary Jitendra Chowdhury said that secular forces must unite to oust the BJP.
Manik Sarkar also expressed the same opinion.
He said, “There is an alliance within the Left Front. If any remaining secular powers want to join, talks can come”.
Manik Sarkar also claimed that this time BJP will not come back to power in Tripura.
Meanwhile, Congress MLA Sudip Roy Barman and President Birjit Sinha are also asking for an alliance with the CPM.
Congress Scrutiny Committee Chairman Deepa Dasmunsi has expressed her opinion in favor of an alliance with the Left in the Tripura Assembly elections.
Notably, the 60-member Tripura assembly election will be held next month.
