THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM politburo member Prakash Karat has said that the defeat of the party in Tripura after ruling the state for 25 years is an indication that the party needs a new sense of direction.

“We got 45 per cent vote in Tripura, and hence we have a strong chance of returning to power there. The CPM can get over this crisis. The Tripura election results indicate that the party needs a new sense of direction under the current circumstances,” he said, while talking on the topic ‘Democratic politics in contemporary India’ at the EMS Academy in Thiruvananthapuram.

“The consolidation of anti-Leftist votes resulted in the defeat of the CPM in Tripura. Besides, the BJP pumped in a lot on money and adopted many other means to win the elections there. The Congress, which was the opposition for the CPM in Tripura was weak and their stances on many matters in the past one year had also gone against the CPM. Even Congress members at booth level joined the BJP and this was the main reason for our defeat there,” he said.

He also said that the BJP is trying to force neo-liberal idea and Hindutva agenda on the people in Tripura, and for this reason, the BJP will have to considered as our main enemy.

Prakash Karat added that new tactical measures will be discussed in the party congress.
