CPI(M) never sought ban on VHP: Karat

NEW DELHI, JUNE 24: CPI (M) general secretary Prakash Karat on Tuesday clarified that his party had never demanded a ban on Vishwa Hindu Parishad.

Reacting to news reports stating that in the past, CPI (M) had demanded ban on VHP, Karat said, "We only demanded ban on Bajrang Dal after violence in Kandhamal. As for VHP and RSS, we have all along maintained that political organisations should not be banned."
