Part ways with BJP, allies urged

By Our Staff Reporter

PONDICHERRY, NOV. 3. The Communist Party of India (Marxist) Central Committee member, N. Sankariah, has said the Maharashtra poll verdict has confirmed that the people were behind the secular forces, which augured well for the growth of secularism.

Addressing newspersons at the CPI (M) party office here, Mr. Sankariah said the poll verdict had shaken the Bharatiya Janata Party.

He said partners in the National Democratic Alliance should part ways with the BJP as it would take up the Ram temple issue. The BJP was showing a fast decline in its popularity, he said.

The Common Minimum programme should be implemented properly to ameliorate the sufferings of the people, Mr. Sankariah said.

Lift ban on recruitment

The ban order imposed by the Centre on recruitment should be lifted and there should be growth with employment. People and worker-friendly technologies should be adopted so that there would be no threat to job security. Mr. Sankariah said the Tamil Nadu Government should come forward to hold talks with the Opposition people-related issues instead of devoting time to take recourse to legislations such as the TESMA and ESMA.

He scoffed at the `padayatra' by the Special Task Force chief, K. Vijay Kumar, after the elimination of the forest brigand, Veerappan.

The Pondicherry CPI (M) unit secretary, T. Murugan, said the party would take out rallies on November 8 and 9 to draw the Government's attention on serious issues.

He said the administration should announce the date for civic polls, which were due for more than 30 years.
