New Delhi, March 11 (KMS): Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) has said that the victory of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls is due to communal polarisation, control of media and money power.
The BJP raced towards a second straight win in politically crucial Uttar Pradesh and dominated the score chart in three other states, while the Aam Aadmi Party announced its presence with a landslide victory in Punjab.
The CPI-M in a statement issued in New Delhi said, “With intensified communal polarisation, control over large sections of media and immense money power, the BJP retained government with a reduced majority.”
On the Punjab results, the Left party said it is a “decisive change” to reject traditional parties.
“In Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) secured a sweeping victory. The people of Punjab have voted for a decisive change, rejecting the two traditional parties—Congress and Akali Dal,” it said.
