The viper with the double-tongue

Karat accuses Congress of inaction during Babri Masjid demolition. And BJP is accused of "action" during Gujarat riots. Strangely, CPM is not faulty on either counts for the Nandigram genocide although it was ruling the state and was directly responsible for the genocide.

The Hindu : Front Page : Don’t equate Left with communal forces: Karat
Accusing the Congress government at the Centre of ‘inaction’ when the Babri Masjid was demolished, Mr. Karat said that while the ‘culpability’ for the incident lay primarily with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Bharatiya Janata Party and Hindutva forces, the Narasimha Rao government was “also culpable and complicit in letting this dark, dastardly thing happen.”

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee warned against the RSS, which never supported the Indian independence movement and has no belief in either the Constitution or a democratic government.

Communists acting as British stooges during India's Independence struggle is well-known and documented. What an irony, Buddhadeb is blaming the RSS.
