CPI-M general secretary Prakash Karat on Wednesday said the people of the country are facing a “rightist onslaught” from the NDA government and RSS who are going ahead “with an agenda of forming a Hindu state.”
“On one hand the Narendra Modi government is creating good days for the rich and the RSS is trying to divide the country along communal line on the other. This is being done by launching attacks on Muslims and Christians and together they are going ahead with an agenda of forming a Hindu state,” Karat said at a public rally organised on the occasion of CPI(M)’s 21st state conference.
“To face the rightist onslaught, democratic movements should be sharpened against neo-liberalism, communalism and anti-people policy of the present government,” he said.
Karat said that it is time to strengthen the Communist movement in the country and unite all secular and democratic forces against BJP and NDA government.
“Modi, in his poll pledge, had said good days are waiting for people but in the nine months rich became richer, ordinances were passed bypassing the Parliament and peasants were attacked by withdrawing the support price,” he said.
CPI(M) Politburo member Brinda Karat said the Congress was reduced to a family party and its vice president Rahul Gandhi took leave when the party is in crisis.
“It is really difficult to depend on Congress to fight against BJP. So we need to strengthen our party to launch an effective movement against the anti-people Modi government”, she said.
Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said the state government, despite all constraints, would continue to deliver good governance to people.
Senior CPI(M) leader Biman Bose alleged that the Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal led by Mamata Banerjee had made a “regime of corruption” and TMC leaders, MLAs and MPs were involved chit fund scams.
