Not even a hint of bargaining on unification: Bardhan

By Our Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI, FEB. 10. The Communist Party of India today said the issue of Left unity and, specifically, the unification of the Communist Parties was based on the principles, which the party had outlined in its draft political resolution for next month's party congress.

"Nowhere can one find even a hint of bargain on this issue or anything that connects it with bargain," the CPI general secretary, A.B. Bardhan, said here today. Mr. Bardhan was responding to a statement made by his CPI(M) counterpart, Harkishan Singh Surjeet, in Kolkata that there should be no "bargaining" on the issue of unification of the two Communist parties.

Mr. Bardhan said the CPI's view was to look towards the future and the challenges that were arising and did not mention "nor wishes to mention differences that arose in the past."

The remarks came in the backdrop of Mr. Surjeet's comment that the subject of unification was being raised by "those who had once called us splitters."

The CPI party congress will be held in Chandigarh during the last week of March while that of the CPI(M) takes place in New Delhi in the first week of April.
