Administration has been employed in various ways. Starting from the prime minister of the country, the central government has been used since long ago”, the statement said.
The party has further expressed its sincere gratitude and respect to those who voted for the candidates of anti-BJP political parties.
“In the face of five long years of one-party dictatorship and fascist terror, I heartily congratulate all the supporters and well-wishers of the CPIM who have played an important role in this electoral struggle to restore democracy, peace and harmony and the rule of law”, the statement reads.
Its further said that a phase of the struggle to restore democracy and the right of people to eat and live has passed through this electoral struggle.
