This indeed is a signficant development after the opposition CPI (M) on January 11 had sought unity of all secular forces, including Congress and TIPRA Motha, in order to defeat BJP in the Assembly elections.

Talking to reporters at Agartala, senior Left leader and CPI (M) national general secretary Sitaram Yechury said that the party’s state executive meeting on Tuesday decided to have discussion on issues with the secular parties in order to prevent division of anti-BJP votes and ensure defeat of BJP’s communal politics.
