AIADMK covertly proceeding to support Narendra Modi, says D.Pandian

The country needed an alternative government comprising of secular forces and Left parties to protect its secular fabric and communal amity, said D.Pandian, State secretary, Communist Party of India, here on Sunday.

The time has come for the electorate to remove the scam-ridden Congress-headed UPA government and prevent the Bharatiya Janata Party –led NDA front from staging a comeback, Mr. Pandian said, while canvassing at Ponnamaravathy in the district for the CPI Sivaganga Parliamentary constituency candidate S. Krishnan The nation today requires a stable and people welfare government, and for that to happen it was essential for the electorate to give a clear mandate to secular and democratic forces and the Left parties.

Hitting out at Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Mr. Pandian said the massacre of Muslims in that State in 2002 was still afresh in public memory.

Mr. Pandian said the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate had new worshippers in Tamil Nadu in Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam and Pattali Makkal Katchi who were all supporting Mr. Modi to the hilt. The AIADMK, Mr. Pandian claimed, was covertly proceeding in that direction. The present political environment was such that the BJP would not be in a position to get a clear cut majority on its own; he said adding that the Congress had almost conceded defeat. It was in this background that the Left parties had come together to fight the Congress and the BJP, he said while appealing to the electorate to give a deep thought while exercising their franchise. An alternative government was required to take the country forward with a clear vision, action plan and ideology, and to retrieve the black money stashed away in Swiss banks, Mr. Pandian said.
