The Marxist party betrayed its cadres by refusing a third opportunity to this man on mere technical grounds when the seat was offered by Congress on a platter. He would have proudly walked into Rajyasabha and made the best use of it and that would also have paved the way to a large coalition of diverse parties. Indian people will never pardon this as they will not pardon too the party’ s withdrawal from the first UPA ministry. They seem to want to help BJP come back to power as they had helped it come to power in 2014. Now this party is exulting over Ahmed Patel’ s victory. What a shame!
