Kochi (Kerala): The Aam Admi Party (AAP) is a substitute for bourgeois parties, not the Left, CPI-M general secretary Prakash Karat said Saturday.
He said it was still too early to say anything on the AAP, which formed a minority government in Delhi Dec 28.
"AAP has done well in Delhi and is a significant force, but I am not sure of other states," Karat told the media here.
"They are a substitute for bourgeois parties, not the Left.
"A good thing is that they have drawn support from the middle class. But we are waiting to hear from them (about) their programmes and policies."
