Karat wants agitations nationwide

The Hindu : National : Replicate West Bengal model at Centre, says Karat
Through joint struggles and agitations we have to work …” Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Prakash Karat said
And Karat wants these struggles and agitations replicated nationwide. We must be stupid to "elect" communists, who believe in "One man, One vote, One time".

CPI general secretary A.B. Bardhan too felt it was time for West Bengal to industrialise and conceded that the Government did make some mistakes. He, however, said the Left Front has to learn from the mistakes and move ahead since it had reached the maximum growth on the basis of agriculture. “During one phase there was de-industrialisation in West Bengal, now it is time to industrialise,” he said adding that Kolkata and its surrounds was ranked second after Mumbai for having industries five decades ago.

What is the West Bengal model by the way? Does Bardhan drop any hints above? Whatever it is, the Left itself wants to run away from it. But they want to export this model to rest of India.

The entire article is incoherent, but the Chindu's lead line is clear: BJP and RSS are "desperate" and have upset the decorum of India's highest office.

Of course, the UPA's behaviour in this has been stellar, as they look for the lowest common denominator in their search for a President!
