"The Centre's policies, particularly with regard to price rise and the crisis in agriculture sector has created resentment among the people who have rejected the Congress," Karat said.
Karat, who was in Kolkata to attend the CPI-M West Bengal state committee meeting, told party organ Ganashakti, "The Bharatiya Janata Party had succeeded in weakening the secular forces in Karnataka." He added that the saffron party had made efforts to polarise the people on communal lines for a long time.
