BJP had joined hands with “extremist organisations” in poll-bound Tripura: Yechury

Vastavam web: CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury today accused the BJP of practising “double standards” and said the party that projects itself as a nationalist force across the country had joined hands with “extremist organisations” in poll-bound Tripura.The saffron party will face defeat at the hands of the ruling CPI(M)-led Left Front and the Assembly elections in Tripura will be BJP’s “Waterloo”, he claimed.The BJP, on one hand, has been thrusting its idea of ‘Hindutva nationalism’ upon people and, on the other, it is aligning with the divisive forces in Tripura, the CPI(M) leader alleged.

“The IPFT is now claiming that the BJP has assured them that their demand for a separate rebel state will be considered,” he said.The party recently said that it was holding talks with the BJP for a pre-poll alliance.”The BJP is practising double standards. The party is contradicting its own ideology of Hindutva nationalism and trying to create a division between tribals and non-tribals,” he said.
