At that time, CPIM arranged a vote ragarding the question whether to accept the proposal of Jyoti Basu to be the prime minister.
The rest may be called a historical blunder of CPIM. The same controversy arose when Sitaram Yechury needs support of Congress in Rajyasabha to represent candidature. In this situation congress high command is reluctant to wait for Yechury. CPIM politburo did not give consent for Yechury to be candidate of Rajyasabha for the third time. Contextually, CPIm agrees with other opposition parties in the question of supporting vice president election. Today during Short duration discussion on increase in the incidents of lynching and atrocities on minorities and dalits across the country 21 enthralled minutes. Sitaram Yechury at his best again in d House. As always. From Tagore to Rigveda, from Bhagwad Gita to Vivekananda, from Hitler to Shakespeare; Unmasking the present regime that is lynching its own people.
A must watch.
