The vicious targeting by the Modi government and BJP state governments of intellectuals and activists, who support the cause of Dalit and oppressed communities, is intensifying. This is confirmed by the treatment being meted out to noted intellectual Anand Teltumbde in the Bhima Koregaon case. Teltumbde has been falsely charged in this case when he was not even present at the event. Teltumbde is a senior Professor and author of many critically acclaimed books.
The Polit Bureau appeals to all democratic minded people who cherish justice to protest such highhanded actions of the government which will lead to further alienation of those suffering injustices and the government’s clear double-standards. The Polit Bureau calls upon the Maharashtra government to rescind these vindictive actions.
