Condemning the hurling of petrol bomb at the CPI-M office here a couple of days ago, the party MP, T.K. Rangarajan today accused the Hindutva forces of attempting to fan trouble in Tamil Nadu.
“Such forces should fight the parties politically and not resort to such tactics to muzzle the voice of opposition,” Rangarajan told reporters here.
Recalling BJP President, Amit Shah’s reported statement that it was CPI-M, which was the main opponent of his party, Rangarajan said that it was not fair to indulge in such action, which will affect the development of the nation. “There is lack of security in the city, due to inadequate number in the police department,” he said.
Though all the opposition parties in Tamil Nadu were fighting together for common cause, this should not not be construed as electoral alliance, he pointed out.
“It is a question mark, whether Tamil Nadu government is functioning or not,” he said.
On GST, Rangarajan said that people will suffer due to additional tax and there was all the possibility of prices increased for essential commodities.
