Election Results of Five States Reflect Growing People’s Alienation from BJP - CPI (ML) Red Star

12 December 2018

The results of elections to the three BJP ruled states, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and MP reveal the extent of alienation of people from BJP. These are not votes for the Congress, but anti-BJP vote. That the people are not pro-Congress is reflected in the defeat of the decade long Congress rule in Mizoram and the failure of its Grand Alliance against TRS in Telengana.

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
