Karat chronology

The amount of coverage Karat gets on Chindu is sickening. He is the Chindu's star, isn't he. His foremost agenda is oppose BJP. Then comes opposition to America and finally the support for bourgeois. Chindu's agenda starts with supporting China and opposing BJP. With such synergies, it is natural that Karat is the darling of Chindu.

Karat is opposing India's ties with Israel. He does not want any cooperation with US but advocates strong ties with China. Also, he calls BJP communal, while batting for strong ties between the atheist communists and the virulently chauvinistic Church. You can't expect Chindu to call Karat's bluff.
