Prakash Karat, the leader of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), told a press conference in the capital of India New Delhi this Tuesday that there has to be an alternative which has a democratic, secular, federal and pro-people development agenda. He further added that massive corruption has become a hallmark of the current Congress government and the main opposition i.e. the BJP has no policies different from that of the ruling party. The parties in the 11-party group currently hold 92 seats in the 545-member lower house of the parliament. Moody’s Investors Service said on the 11th February that any so-called Third Front government could lack the basic common agenda to revive the India’s economy, pressuring both the Indian rupee and India’s credit rating.
