I don’t remember which article listed the parties that wanted to repeal Section 377, but I remember the new AAP supporting its repeal, the CPIM and the Left Front also supporting its repeal, and some within the INC supporting it repeal. The INC did have all that time running an Independent India to do so, but never did. The AAP is too young a party to have any influence in Indian politics yet. The CPIM also hasn’t built up enough influence due to the Cold War which ended in 1992. The CPI used to be bigger, but the CPIM split shrunk its influence.
