Lok Sabha election 2019: CPM's Sitaram Yechury ties up with MK Stalin's DMK fo 2019 polls, says, 'alliance is to save unity, integrity and harmony'
As the Assembly election has started for 5 strategic states, the CPI(M) has tied up with MK Stalin’s DMK for the upcoming Lok Sabha election in 2019.
The CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Tuesday met DMK president Stalin at his residence in Chennai and urged all the like minded people to join the alliance and said, “we have a common objective.”
Yechury said that the alliance is required to stop the communal juggernaut of the BJP and “Alliances will always take place at the state level first. On that basis, a national alliance will take shape. We will be with the DMK in TN in the upcoming elections. We are together on the issue of saving the unity, integrity and harmony of the people of India and the country’s constitutional institutions.”
Yechury added that, “We have decided today that in Tamil Nadu we will be with the DMK in the forthcoming elections..”
The anti-Modi and the anti-BJP front is getting ready before the 2019 polls and when Yechury was posed with a question of saving India’s democracy, he said, “More than the attitude of the leaders, it is the people from the ground who will push all the leaders to come together to save India. And it will happen.”
On the partnership with Stalin and the future of such alliances, which are bleak in nature, Yechury said that “That is the objective that both Stalin and I share along with all other leaders... we have a common objective and this is going to be done along with all the other secular democratic forces in the country,” as reported by Firstpost.
