Vajpayee accused of 'creating' Kargil
Communist Organisation of India-Marxist-Leninist general secretary Kanu Sanyal has charged the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government at the Centre with allowing Pakistan intruders to cross the Line of Control into Kashmir and exploiting the situation with the aim of gaining political mileage in the elections.
Addressing a press conference in Kanpur yesterday, Sanyal, who was in town to attend the two-day state-level meeting of the party, said the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government had helped create a situation for the United States to intervene in the internal affairs of the country which ultimately might lead to signing of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.
Sanyal said his party had demanded a white paper on the Kargil situation explaining the intelligence failure, Defence Minister George Fernandes' statement that the intruders would be provided safe passage and the presence of two military generals at the meeting of the BJP national executive.
Sanyal also charged the Congress, the BJP and the Left parties, including the CPI-M, with engaging in the formation of opportunistic alliances to grab power and declared that his organisation would not support any of the combinations.
He said his organisation would contest the Lok Sabha elections jointly with Naxalite and other like-minded progressive and revolutionary groups by forming a front at the national level. Preliminary discussions among the leaders of six such groups had been held in West Bengal. The second round of discussions would be held in Delhi on July 1. He said about 16 to 18 groups were likely to join the proposed front.
