‘Chan­nelise Dis­con­tent to Chal­lenge BJP’

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

NEW DELHI: The peo­ple’s dis­con­tent against the NDA gov­ern­ment’s poli­cies would have to be chan­nelised to evolve a na­tional coali­tion to take on the BJP in the 2019 gen­eral elec­tions, CPM chief Si­taram Yechury has said. “We will de­cide on the ba­sis of poli­cies and pro­grammes... be­cause mere com­ing to­gether does not mean unity, it’s not about arith­metic only. And I think there should be an al­ter­nate gov­ern­ment, a sec­u­lar gov­ern­ment (in 2019). We are not say­ing that we will join hands with any­body,” he said.
