BJP

On Attacks in Tripura

March 6, 2018

 

Press Statement

 

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

 

In solidarity with democratic & peace loving people of Tripura:

Protest condemning RSS/BJP violence

 

Yatra for Communal Polarisation

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) calls upon both the Central and state governments to strengthen the law and order apparatus to ensure that communal peace is not disturbed and individual right to life and liberty is not violated. The Polit Bureau calls upon all secular and peace-loving forces to expose the sinister designs of communal mobilisatiion by the RSS/BJP.

On Assembly Election Results

The Gujarat assembly election results show that the BJP has nothing much to celebrate. Although it has won a majority to form a government, it has got the lowest number of seats in the last two decades. It is expected to win around hundred seats compared to 115 last time – a big fall from the “Mission 150” declared by BJP President Amit Shah. The erosion in support can also be seen from the fact that in the Lok Sabha election of 2014 the BJP had led in 165 assembly segments.

P.B. Communique

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.

P.B. Communique

The Polit Bureau hails the struggles of the kisans in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh which is now spreading to various other parts of the country. The Modi government must immediately implement its election promise of announcing a Minimum Support Price of one and a half times the production cost as also a loan waiver. The CPI(M) also demands that a special Central legislation be enacted where the government shall compulsorily buy the produce of the kisans at the minimum support price.
