Kolkata, Feb 27 IANS | 6 months ago

Unperturbed by his expulsion from the CPI-M, veteran West Bengal legislator Abdur Rezzak Mollah Thursday hit out at the party, saying it was run by managers.


Mollah, a former minister in the Left Front government, also denied getting any communication from the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) regarding his expulsion, but said he has accepted it.

"In the name of restructuring, certain people have created a coterie which is calling the shots, democracy has now given way to bureaucracy in the party. It is not being run by cadres but leaders who have turned managers," Mollah said a day after he was expelled by the CPI-M for "serious anti-party activities" and "belittling the party's image in public".

Mollah was expelled days after he floated a pro-Dalit and minority outfit. He vowed to continue his fight for the welfare of the backward sections of the society.

"I will continue my struggle to dismantle the upper class hegemony that has pervaded the administration and political parties," said Mollah. He recently floated the Social Justice Forum which will field candidates in the 2016 assembly polls.

Meanwhile, justifying Mollah's expulsion, CPI-M leader Shyamal Chakraborty said the move will not have any adverse effect on the party's fortunes in the Lok Sabha polls.

"More than the polls, preserving discipline in the party is essential. Ha was censured several times but he refused to learn," said Chakraborty.

Trinamool Congress leader and Panchayat Minister Subrata Mukherjee said a day will come when the CPI-M will disintegrate.

"Today it's Mollah, tomorrow it will be someone else. The way things are going, days are not far when the whole party will disintegrate and will be left with only two leaders - Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and Biman Bose," Mukherjee said.
