CPI National Secretary, D. Raja today accused RSS of trying to take control of the governance of the country, by issuing diktats to Narendra Modi-led NDA government, in its bid to saffronise the nation.
“Now RSS is taking central role and sharpening its entry into the governance, thus behaving like an extra-constitutional authority”, Raja told reporters here. Stating that a man belonging to a minority community was murdered for his alleged involvement in cow slaughter and another youth was murdered for having a ring tone of Ambedkar’s song, Raja said that the people, including Dalits and minorities were living in fear as to what would happen next and to whom.
Moreover, some outfits belonging to RSS were in the habit of eliminating persons and experts opposing to their ideology like Dabolkar and Pansare in Maharashtra and M M Kalburgi in Karnataka, Raja said. The Party would organise a nation-wide demonstration on November 24, the birthday of Pansare to create awareness among the public against the “evil designs” of Sangh Parivar.
On frequent foreign tours of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Raja said “it is not a Make in India campaign, but Make profit in India” for which he was inviting big corporates and MNCs to invest in the country, which meant deregulation, to convert the Indian economy into US-Model economy.
On Bihar elections, Raja said that the results would have a serious impact on the national politics and also have a bearing on the coming Assembly elections to some States like Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, West Bengal and Assam. As an alternative to BJP and Grand Alliance, Left parties were fighting the elections, so that a change could be projected to the State, he said.
When asked on the allegation that BJP was hand in glove with MIM of Owaisi in Bihar, Raja said that such parties were feeding and using each other to polarise the voters.
He also said that the Party would stage a State-wide demonstration in Tamil Nadu on October 5 to protest against the price rise and also the prevailing drought-like situation across the State, particularly 17 districts. On reservation issue, Raja said that many organisations were attempting to scuttle the rights of SC/ST and OBC, by resorting to agitation, pointing at the move of Hardik Patel in Gujarat, who was actually fighting against the reservation policy.
