The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
On Gujarat Assembly Results
The BJP has won the assembly elections in Gujarat. The results show that where the impact of communal politics is deep, electoral efforts alone are insufficient to defeat the communal forces. What is required is a determined and uncompromising struggle against the communal ideology of Hindutva and the capacity to launch sustained struggles of all sections of the people who suffered from the rightwing economic policies of the Modi government.
