Tiruchy: The ongoing political activities in Karnataka after the Assembly election results has caught the entire nation's imagination as it sends pointers to the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, according to the CPI's national secretary, Mr. D Raja.
He told newsmen here on Sunday that the resignation of the BJP leader Mr. Yeddyurappa was a “big victory for the secular forces”. “The BJP is making all efforts to grab power in states across the country by denigrating the Indian Constitution, he alleged. Mr. Raja further alleged that even though Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi has completed four years in the office, there was no achievement to speak of, besides having failed to implement his electoral assurances. The Indian economy’s growth has slid while the farmers suffered a lot, he said. The CPI leader called upon all secular forces to unite under one banner in order to remove the “anti-people BJP government at the Centre”. To a question, he said in Tamil Nadu, the present AIADMK regime has lost its “moral rights” to continue in office.
