AGARTALA, May 28 - The CPI (M) has claimed there would not be any major change in the socio-economic condition of Assam after the BJP coming to power.
�People of Assam didn�t have an option. People were frustrated with the non-performing and corrupt Tarun Gogoi Government while the Left parties were also very weak in Assam leading to BJP�s victory�, said party�s Tripura State Secretary Bijan Dhar after the two-day party State Committee meeting here.
Admitting that the saffron party�s influence will be enhanced in Tripura, the CPM Secretary said the party would intensify its political movement to resist BJP�s aggression here.
The CPI (M) would maintain equi-distance from the communal forces as well as Congress, he said.
The BJP came to the power by banking on the corrupt practices and anti-people policies of the Congress-led UPA, he said while speaking to media at the party headquarters here on Friday.
�We are of the view that the CPI (M) will maintain equal distance from the BJP as well as Congress as per the decision taken in the 21st Party Congress held in Vishakhapatnam.
Dhar, however, claimed the issue of party�s electoral tie up with its arch-rival Congress in West Bengal did not come up for discussion in the meeting.
�This is not our area of jurisdiction and we did not discuss the issue. The West Bengal party State Committee will have an elaborate discussion on the issue and send the report to the party higher ups�, he said.
