RSP blames Marxists for lack of Left unity
The Revolutionary Socialist Party, a constituent of the Left front, Tuesday accused the Communist Party of India-Marxist and the Communist Party of India of being permanent irritants in the process of achieving internal unity.
Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, RSP general secretary K Pankajakshan said that until both the parties underwent an attitudinal change no viable and cohesive Left front or Left unity can be achieved.
Only if the Left parties unite on policies and programmes can they effectively work towards the formation of a third front comprising the Left democratic and secular forces, Pankajakshan said.
And only such a third front can effectively counter ''the corrupt Congress'' and the ''communal BJP,'' which is fervently implementing the anti-people economic policies initiated by the Congress, he claimed.
The absence of the Left front at the national level and the pro-Congress approach that the two major parties advocated negatively affected electoral fortunes, he said.
Pankajakshan said a third front, with the Left parties as its core, must take up the initiative to organise mass movements and spearhead agitation against the hike in the prices of petroleum products and the proposed cut in subsidies.
