KOCHI: The decision of CPM Central Committee to reject the resolution presented by party general secretary Sitaram Yechury to have strategic tie-up with Congress to defeat the BJP is the second historic blunder committed by the CPM, says Geevarghese Coorilose, Metropolitan of Niranam Diocese of the Jacobite Syrian Church on Sunday. In a Facebook post, the Metropolitan known for his pro-left attitude, has said the refusal to allow Jyoti Basu to become the Prime Minister was the first historical blunder.

"The present situation calls for the unity of all political forces against communal fascism" the Metropolitan said and wondered in "which the age the CPM was living".   The decision will make the communal forces happy and secularists disappointed, he said. It is ironical that CPM which has made Congress untouchable for its neoliberal economic policies is trying to placate a regional party in Kerala following the same economic policies, he pointed out.

 

He also wondered what to expect from a person like Prakash Karat as he is still doubtful about the existence of fascism in the country. Let the time prove whether ideological bankruptcy, soft Hindutva or personality clashes led to such a decision, he added.      Listing several other flaws in the decision of the Central Committee, the Metropolitan ended the Facebook post with the words that "I am with Mr Yechury on this issue. After all, there is a politics even in standing along with the defeated".
