The Polit Bureau discussed the Draft Political Report for the 22nd Congress. These discussions will now be placed for the Central Committee’s consideration at its forthcoming meeting from January 19 to 21, 2018 at Kolkata.
On June 29th, the papers carried your statement, as Chief Minister of Haryana, condemning the murder. You also declared a compensation of Rs. Ten lakhs. Unfortunately no compensation whatsoever has been received by the family from the Government.
The Left parties call upon all their units in the country to observe December 6 as a Black Day and to strengthen in the current context the struggle against communal polarisation being patronised and encouraged by the central as well as many BJP led state governments.
The fact that a constitutional Government has given permission for such a fair to be held is in itself highly objectionable. That it is actually making it mandatory for school children to attend the fair and be exposed to the propagation of hatred for minority communities is completely unacceptable.
CPI(M) demands action against the guilty. It demands adequate compensation for the family. It calls for strong protest actions against such communally motivated crimes, especially in public spaces.
The notification of the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change that bans sale of cattle for slaughter is an atrocious attempt by the Modi government to give legal cover for its wholly communal and divisive agenda to impose a diet code on the country.
Report on Political Developments
(Adopted by the Central Committee
at its meeting on April 18-19, 2017)
Following the recent election victories, particularly in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, the RSS-BJP have intensified their activities aimed at sharpening communal polarization through various means. During the nearly three years since Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, the RSS has rapidly spread its influence in various parts of the country.
P.B. demands that till all alternative arrangements like the availability of required currency notes and the recalibration of the ATM machines are completed, people should be allowed to transact in rupees 500 and 1000 notes till the time limit set by the government of December 31, 2016
The Polit Bureau took note of the serious havoc caused by the floods that have occurred in various parts of the country, especially in East and northern parts of the country, owing to heavy rains. Assam and Bihar are the worst affected.
