The left has been the only consistent opposition to the nuclear deal.
It has performed the role of the opposition and has reinforced itself as the only intelligent formation that can offer issue based and intelligent opposition.
The left needs to embark on an imaginative enrolment drive which can bring the youth into its fold.
It has to overcome an image of intellectualism and one of the seventies.
It has to acquire the image of a twenty first century party.
The hindutva elements are at present engaged in the make believe game of
labelling the left.
The bjp has no leader with the calibre to enter into an intelligent debate.It specialises in the
politics of namecalling and its cadre are sad imitations of the leadership.
The various doubts and questions that arise vindicate the lefts stand of asking the government
to be patient on the deal.
