Agartala: CPI-M General Secretary Prakash
Karat today 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 here
organized on the occasion of CPI(M)'s 21st state conference
which began today.
“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”,
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.
