CPI-M rules out joint UF manifesto
Communist Party of India-Marxist general secretary Harkishen Singh Surjeet yesterday ruled out the possibility of a joint United Front manifesto for the coming Lok Sabha elections.
"A joint UF manifesto is not possible because there are some fundamental differences," he told the media after the party's two-day central committee meeting in Calcutta. He did not elaborate on the differences.
Surjeet, however, said the UF would thrash out a common programme to the seek the people's mandate.
As for the Left parties, there would be a common manifesto, said the CPI-M leader .
Surjeet also came down heavily against the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress. "The BJP and the Congress will not be able to provide stability to the country as this requires commitment to secularism, national unity, federalism and pro-people economic growth."
