Shimla : The CPIM today reacted sharply to the remark of the ruling BJP calling the CPM a â€˜B team of the Congressâ€™ as it was criticising the BJPâ€™s in ability to further lower the prices of cement in the state .
Without naming the BJP leader who made the remark , the state CPM leader Tikender Panwar told reporters his party strongly ridicules the statement .
â€œFor the last four years the BJP has been protecting the interests of cement companies in the state , how can the party shy away from this reality and react to our comments in such a childish manner ,â€ Panwar said .
â€œIn fact the BJP is the B team of the Congress for following anti-people policies in the state and the centre,â€ he said .
â€œThe CPM has already vowed at a recent rally in Mandi to thoroughly expose the BJP government in the state for its failure on all fronts ,â€ Panwar said .
â€œInstead of having a debate on issues the BJP should desist from making ridiculous statements ,â€ he said .
