The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

Condemn this Brazen Horse-Trading

The BJP has, once again, displayed its contempt for democracy by indulging in crass horse-trading to try and topple the Congress state government of Madhya Pradesh exploiting some opportunist elements. This completely seeks to reverse the people’s mandate and demonstrates the BJP’s attitude, once again, towards democracy, people’s will and the rule of law.

Given the declared opposition of many non-BJP state governments to the CAA/NPR/NRC process, the BJP is targeting to seek the downfall of these governments by indulging in the worst form of horse-trading.

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the anti-democratic methods of BJP.  The PB draws particular attention of all non-BJP state governments to be vigilant of BJP’s huge  money power and horse-trading along with blackmailing and blandishment. People’s mandates cannot be violated and reversed in such a brazen anti-democratic manner.
