"Exit of two-party system in the offing" : Manik Sarkar

CPI(M) state secretary N.Varadharajan honoured Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar at Madurai public meeting.



This Lok Sabha election will see the exit of two-party system and the emergence of the third force as a viable alternative. It will also witness the sharing of power by Dalits, minorities, working classes and other downtrodden sections of the society, said Manik Sarkar, Chief Minister of Tripura and Polit Bureau Member of Communist party of India (Marxist).

Addressing an election meeting here on Tuesday in support of Madurai candidate P. Mohan, he said that during this election an important slogan had emerged and it was making waves across the nation — "A government without the direct or indirect support of Congress or Bharatiya Janata Party."

The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam-led alliance was a sinking ship whose vote base was eroding day-by-day and would be routed in the elections. Stating that democracy provided space for competing ideologies but not for "terrorising" the opposition using muscle and money power, he said that the national media had been taking note of the incidents happening in Madurai and was acting as a gatekeeper, keeping democracy alive. The pertinent question in this election would be who was going to frame the policies. The Congress-led government had failed on the economic front and its policies resulted in price rise, job cuts and unemployment of an unseen nature.

India’s foreign policy had been compromised at the behest of United States’ imperialism and the whole credit for this went to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

All the regional parties, which stood by the Congress and BJP, had deserted them.
