'Cong diverting attention from fuel hike'

While claiming consistency in opposing the BJP’s communal politics, Karat defended the saffron party’s participation in the Bharat Bundh.  

“Faced with such a big attack on the people’s livelihood, no Opposition party could keep away from an all-India protest,” he says in an editorial in the coming issue of the party mouthpiece, “People’s Democracy.”

Attacking the Congress and its supporters in the corporate media, the editorial said: “Faced with this massive opposition and protest, the Congress party and its supporters in the corporate media are now raising in chorus the spectre of a Left-BJP unity. They conveniently ignore the fact that almost all the secular Opposition parties have conducted the hartal.”

“Even the Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Lok Janshakti Party has given call for a bundh in Bihar on July 10,” it said.
