Delhi State Committee of the CPI(M) organized a militant protest demonstration today at Jantar Mantar against the attack on CPI(M) offices in Tripura by the RSS-BJP. CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, Polit Bureau member Com. Prakash Karat and CPI National Secretary D Raja addressed the meeting which was held thereafter. The demonstration which was conducted by Com. KM Tiwari was attended by Polit Bureau members Brinda Karat, BV Raghavulu, Subashini Ali, Nilotpal Basu, Joginder Sharma (Member, Central Secretariat) and V Sivadasan (Member, Rajyasabha).
Speakers have underlined that mainstream media has given a wrong colour of CPI(M)-BJP clashes while the truth is that the BJP-RSS is trying to muzzle the mass movement initiated by the CPI(M) and its mass organisations against the anti-people BJP government in Tripura. Many CPI(M) offices including the state headquarters, houses of party activists and offices of media houses were attacked. They underlined that the Communist movement in Tripura has lived up to many such ruling class repression in the past and would transcend this as well with the support of the people. The repression must immediately stop the leaders said.
Besides Jantar Mantar, protests were held at 4 places in Ghaziabad and 1 place in Noida. The anti-people face of these BJP governments, whether central or states have got exposed before the people during the pandemic. Raising solidarity with the people of Tripura means raising the banner of protest against the anti-people policies of the BJP led governments throughout the country.
