Victory In Andhra Pradesh
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) congratulates the people of Andhra Pradesh for decisively rejecting the TDP-BJP alliance in the assembly elections. The big victory registered by the opposition is a decisive rejection of the TDP government’s policies which were shaped by the World Bank.
