Narendra Modi govt will face crushing defeat in Lok Sabha elections: Yechuri

Patna, Apr 23 (UNI) National General Secretary of CPI (M) Sitaram Yechuri today said the Narendra Modi government was all set to lose power in the Lok Sabha elections and a secular government would be formed at the Centre.

Mr Yechuri told media persons here that the BJP and its allies would have struggled to open account in ongoing Lok Sabha elections, had the Grand Alliance been formed taking together the Left parties. Where Left candidate was not in fray, his party would support the Grand Alliance to ensure crushing defeat of BJP and its allies, he added.
"Separate alliances have been formed in various states but all secular forces including Left and Socialists would come together to form the new government at the Centre after Lok Sabha elections," Mr Yechuri said adding that the NDA had no answer to the basic question of giving employments to youths.
The CPI(M) leader said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was trying to misuse the sacrifices made by security forces for his political gains which could not be tolerated by people of the country. His party had written a letter to the Election Commission demanding ban on such kind of speeches of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he added

Mr Yechuri said that he would go to Begusarai for seeking votes in favour of CPI candidate Kanhaiya Kumar. Prospect was good for Mr Kumar to win from Begusarai seat, he remarked.
