Reality Check India

Where are the CPI-M leaders ?

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on November 12, 2009

Faced with massive defeat in Kerala and West Bengal at the hands of their erstwhile UPA buddies, the Congress Party. You would think the left leaders would huddle up.

Brinda Karat – Brazil
Prakash Karat – London (Brinda will join him at London after Brazil)
Sitaram Yechury – Spain

Like them or not, India needs the left to check the Congress party which is the primary custodian of the status quo (read third world corruption empire characterized by a vice like grip of vested interests).

Their four and a half years in support of the Congress party shone unprecedented media spotlight on Brinda Karat, Prakash Karat, Yechuri, D.Raja etc. How many of us heard of them before ? For four and a half years they had it easy in TV studios, they were able to cash in the “secular” voucher in every TV debate. For a moment, they thought the “secular” voucher could be used by all parties not just the Congress. They made a fatal mistake. Secular is a synonym for the Congress Party. These three leaders seemed more and more like the Congress leaders, at least in terms of viciously attacking the other primary opposition the BJP. You could easily mistake Yechuri for a Tharoor.The left let the Congress define or place them inside TV studios and outside.

Would you like to spend your money to watch Michael Jackson dance or an imitator ? The voter has spoken.

    > the voter has spoken.

    Has s/he, or is it just the EVM?

    Can EVMs be rigged ? You bet!

    However, the left confused the voter who saw no benefit in supporting a narrower choice who looked just like the larger choice.

    All these years the left had a run of TV studios thrashing the BJP and dancing around the Congress party.

    India needs commies as much as any of us needs a bout of swine flu.

    Right now, they are making a noise about corruption and that works for me. It is a really big deal. (None of the rest SP, BSP, RJD, give two hoots)

    Of course the grand plan is to jettison them after they have played their part 🙂
