 Indiainfo.com -> News -> India -> Basu for 'National Platform' as alternative to BJP
Kolkata: Raking up the issue of an alternative to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)- led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at the Centre, veteran Communist Party of India — Marxist (CPM) leader Jyoti Basu on February 26 mooted the idea of a broad-based "National Platform" of Left and secular forces before the next Parliamentary elections.
The alliance was necessary for purposes of a broad-based unity to launch sustained agitations for the ouster of the NDA government at the Centre, which was pursuing "anti-people, anti-labour and anti-national economic policies", he said.
It was necessary to intensify agitations to oppose the "attempts" of the BJP and sangh parivar, who he alleged were not serious to remove the economic ills facing the country but were shifting focus to divide the country along religious lines by raising the bogey of hindutva with an eye on the next general elections.

Traditionally, the National Conference and the BJP have been bitter enemies, for the BJP's pro-Hindu policies are inimical to the National Conference's mainly Muslim membership and because the BJP has long called for the abolition of Jammu and Kashmir's special autonomous status under India's constitution (today, it is backtracking on the issue).
Although it holds just four Lok Sabha seats, the National Conference is politically important because it is the largest pro-India party in the contested state of Kashmir.
India was partitioned on the ground of the demand by a section of the population that Muslims are a separate nation.
