Karat dismisses feud between him and Yechury; stated this
The Communist Party Marxist is in news but for negative reasons.
None less than party leader Prakash Karat had to clarify that the debate in the CPI(M) over the draft political resolution was not factionalism or a clash between him and general secretary Sitaram Yechury.
Karat went to blame the media instead for making conclusions of its own.
The issue came into light after central committee taking up two draft resolutions — the Politburo draft presented by Karat and the minority draft presented by Yechury.
Arguing that the CPI(M) has a distinctive style of functioning based on the organisational principles of democratic centralism, he said different views can be expressed on political issues. >
