An alternative front sans Congress and BJP to fight corruption and control price rice is not possible without the initiative of Left parties, CPI General Secretary Sudhakar Reddy said on Sunday.
"Our party thinks that the federal front proposal is meaningless. There is no use in just gathering and mobilising non-Congress, non-BJP and regional parties. It is not going to make any difference for people of the country", he told reporters here.
He was responding to a query on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's recent remarks on forming a federal front of non-Congress and non-BJP parties for the Lok Sabha elections.
He said any government of an alternative front, which should be able to deliver the goods, "will not be possible without the Left parties' initiative", he said.
Reddy opined there should be an alternative front to fight corruption,control price-rise and change the 'anti-people' and 'pro-Corporate' policies of the present government.
"We want an alternative front (ruling at the Centre) and not a third front," he said.
