He said, two-party system can no more run India.Congress is speaking of a high growth economy. It has led to the growth of some super rich, the Aam admi has suffered. Now, under recession millions are losing their jobs. Thousands in Orissa too had to return back to home after losing job in Western India. Congress is saying that inflation has come down. But the prices of essential items including the food items are skyrocketing.UPA has devastated the PDS system.
Karat said,BJP’s ideology is Hindutwa.We will not allow India to be a theocracy-dominated country like Pakistan. The dominance of religion in Pakistan’s politics had made their democracy threatened. Terrorists are attacking almost every day. Communal amity can challenge terrorism.BJP has an opposite path. The ghastardly face of BJP has been exhibited in Kandhmal.BJP wants hundreads of Kandhamal in the whole country.
