CPM rules out pact with SAD

Bathinda, July 14

Sukhwinder Singh Sekhon, state secretary, CPM, ruled out the possibility of a pre-poll alliance with the SAD, while addressing a press conference in Bathinda on Wednesday.

Sekhon said, “We refute the claims by SAD that their alliance with communist parties is in the final stages. We want to clarify our stand that there will not be any pre-poll alliance with the SAD until the party clarifies its stance regarding Sikh hardliner and Khalistani forces. Then only, we can ponder over an alliance with the party.”

Lashing out at the Centre over increased prices of petrol, Sekhon said, “Owing to its anti-people policies, the common man is suffering during the pandemic and the economy has hit its lowest ebb.” On the 6th Pay Commission report and power cuts, he said, “The employees are entitled to NPA and it must not be snatched or reduced,” he said. — TNS
