CPI(M) has decided to counter the Right Wing offensive and for that a broad unity of the left and democratic forces and left and democratic alternative has to be built. For that enhancing the strength of CPI(M) is a pre condition. Karat said , the left front govt and left movement of Tripura is at the forefront of the left & democratic movement of the country. We shall mobilize the entire left and democratic forces of the country in defence of the left movement of Tripura.
