"Mollah said Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar was an honest man but was not acting against the corrupt."
Agartala, July 6 - The future of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) in national politics is zero, expelled CPI-M leader Abdur Rezzak Mollah said Sunday.

The CPI-M's future in national politics is zero, zero, zero. The party is now ruled by managers, not leaders, Mollah told reporters here.

The CPI-M is now representing landlords and rich men. The political culture under the Trinamool Congress-ruled West Bengal has been ruined and soon the state will be ruled by hoodlums, he added.

Mollah said there was no strong opposition in Marxist-ruled Tripura and a strong opposition can anytime topple the CPI-M led Left Front government in the state.

Mollah, a legislator since 1972, was expelled by the CPI-M'a West Bengal unit Feb 26 for anti-party activities days after he floated rhw Social Justice Forum -- a pro-Dalit and minority outfit which he claimed would contest the 2016 West Bengal assembly polls.

A former West Bengal minister, Mollah was here to address a seminar on human rights and rights of backward people.

It was organised by a social organisation Nirbhaya, formed by expelled former CPI-M Lok Sabha member Ajoy Biswas and pro-Congress intellectual Ashok Sinha among others.

Mollah said Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar was an honest man but was not acting against the corrupt.

Manik Sarkar is a blue-eyed boy of the CPI-M. The view in Bengal is that a golden era is now prevailing in Tripura, he said, adding the reality was different.
