Left along with other democratic parties like Congress should unite to fight growing communal forces in the country, said CPI National Secretary K Narayana. "Considering the outcome of elections in the recent past, left parties alone would not be able to fight the growing communal forces in the country. Democratic parties like Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) among others, should unite for it," Narayana said. During the recently concluded CPI's national executive council meeting, it was decided that a conclave of all left parties and democratic parties be held in the coming months, he said. Alleging Adityanath Yogi's elevation as Chief Minister in Uttar Pradesh a threat to secularism and democracy, Narayana said, "Shutting down of abattoirs has caused an economic crisis in the state and have affected people involved in the supply chain".
