Moreover, this argument of seen to be lining up with TMC in case of abstention will come to naught if TMC decides to vote for Pran which, it seems, might actually happen. Also, as TMC is against FDI in retail, would CPM leadership change its stand? The fact of the matter is everybody knows the reasons for love for Pranab. Budha and even Biman, two PBMs, had made it clear in television interviews which lakhs of people had seen, even before the LOk Sabha elections, that 'Pranab is like a statesman' so we can talk to him.
There was not even a censure for such comments during elections. It is for the people to decide that whether they are communists at all.
Neo-Yeletsins of CPM will see to it that the party is decimated. It is sad to see that Com. Prakash is justifying such crass opportunism and wrong politics in the name of tactics. History will not judge these leaders very compassionately. Till then.
