Communist Party of India national secretary D. Raja has said the “angry wave” against the “anti-people” policies of the Congress will sweep away the party, which heads the ruling coalition at the Centre.

In monetary and fiscal policies and external affairs, there was no difference between the Congress and the BJP. Both did not represent the whole country, as a lot of political space was left for other parties, he said at a press conference here on Saturday.

Therefore, to mitigate the sufferings of the people, the Left parties had come together to provide an alternative. He said he would not like to call it a “third or fourth front.”

Mr. Raja said he received information that the UPA government was to clinch an agreement with Russia for establishing the third and fourth units of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project and determining the prices of the units. When Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his government were on their way out, they had no moral authority to clinch such a deal. So, the CPI proposed to take up the issue with the Election Commission.

Mr. Raja pointed out that the regional parties such as the DMK, the AIADMK, the PMK and the DMDK seemed to be facing an ideological dilemma in the elections, therefore Tamil Nadu was in for a change.”
