New Delhi:

The Left parties in India should cooperate with the Congress party at the national level to fight against the “wrong” policies of the BJP-led Union government, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Friday.

While addressing a public meeting organised by the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) in Kochi,  the former PM said, “At the national level, are we going to oppose the BJP as a united front or whether CPI(M) will keep BJP and Congress at the same distance?”

“If they are sincere in the fight against the BJP and its anti-people policies, they have to cooperate with the leadership of Congress at the national level and fight together against the BJP’s misrule and divisive policies,” he added.

Under the Pinaryi Vijayan-led government, “rule of law has crumbled, women in the state do not feel safe and economic progress is slow”, Singh said while criticising the Kerala’s CPI(M)-led LDF government.
