After RJD, will the Congress alliance break even with the Left? Yechury said - the option of BJP will be decided by the public, no one else

In Bihar, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) broke the alliance with the Congress party in the by-elections. Meanwhile, the Left has also started showing eyes to the country's oldest party. CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said in clear words that the BJP's alternative would come from the mandate of the people and not the decision of someone else. He gave this information on Monday after the party's Central Committee meeting.

He said the issue of Congress being an alternative was not discussed in the party's central committee meeting. Also, the matter of any kind of relationship with Congress was not discussed in the meeting.

Vijayan said – Congress is not an alternative to BJPSources said that on the second day of the Central Committee meeting, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had categorically stated that the Congress party was not an alternative to the BJP. Highlighting how the Janata Party emerged as an alternative to the Congress after the Emergency and the United Progressive Organization (UPA) was formed after the defeat of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Yechury said the people of India have always found alternatives.

People will choose BJP's alternative: YechuryHe said no decision was taken on the issue of affiliation with the Congress. Congress was not discussed as a national alternative to BJP. He said that if there is an alternative against the BJP, So it will come out as a decision taken by the people of the country and not someone else's decision. Whenever people have faced such a situation, they have found an alternative on their own.

Yechury took a dig at a minister's remarks linking excise duty on petroleum products to free immunization, amid celebrations of the BJP government after reaching the 100 crore dose mark of the anti-coronavirus vaccine. He said a cabinet minister is making an absurd claim that the hike in central excise duty on petroleum products is funding free vaccination. This is ridiculous. If people are paying an exorbitant price, vaccination is not free.

What happened to the budgetary allocation of Rs 35,000 crore for vaccination? Where did all the money go? He alleged that the Narendra Modi government was organizing celebrations for 100 crore vaccines to distract the attention of the people and to hide its blatant mismanagement from the pandemic. The CPI(M) general secretary also demanded a caste-based census in the 2021 demographic survey.
