Kolkata, Feb 16 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) patriarch L K Advani on Tuesday said the Marxists are a spent force and the ideology has lost its steam.
“West Bengal has gone back under the Marxist rule. The Marxists used to tell me that the sun will never set on their sphere of influence, but now they are in bad shape. Even they are nowhere in their bastion of erstwhile USSR,” Advani told a rally in Kolkata’s downtown Esplanade.
Marxism has lost its steam and if there is widespread support for anything now, it is democracy, he said.
Top BJP leaders gathered in Kolkata on Tuesday for a two-day meeting of its central office-bearers.
