New Delhi [India], Dec 11 (ANI): The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) on Tuesday said the Assembly results of Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh have "shattered the myth of the BJP's electoral invincibility."

In a statement, the CPI-M said, "The defeat of the BJP in the elections to the state assemblies of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh, is a clear indication of the people's discontent and anger at the policies followed by the Modi government and the BJP state governments that have imposed unbearable burdens on the people. These results have shattered the myth of the BJP's electoral invincibility."

CPI-M further stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP has only focused their efforts on diverting the people's attention towards "issues aimed at sharpening communal polarisation" while ignoring the real issues.

"The new governments that will be formed in the former BJP-ruled states must respect the people's verdict and adopt policies aimed at improving people's livelihood and reducing their miseries. These governments must also ensure that the unity of the people and the integrity of the country are not further damaged by the BJP's politics of communal polarization," the CPI-M said.

CPI-M also revelled in the BJP's failure in the assembly elections in Telangana and Mizoram, where the Telangana Rashtriya Samithi (TRS) and Mizo National Front (MRF) respectively have got the mandate to form the next government. (ANI)
