Jyoti Basu keen on expanding party's base

Kolkata: Expansion of the CPI (M) in the northern and southern States is the last wish of nonagenarian Marxist leader Jyoti Basu.

"We have not been able to expand our party's base outside West Bengal and Kerala and it is my last wish to see our expansion in the northern as well as in southern states," Mr. Basu told an open rally of CITU here.

Wish fulfilled

Prior to the last Assembly elections in the State in May, last year, the former Chief Minister had also expressed his `last wish' to see the installation of the seventh Left Front in power in West Bengal.

His wish was fulfilled when CPI (M)-led Left Front stormed back to power with a thumping two-thirds majority. — PTI
