All these scams conclusively prove that corruption in high places has reached new heights under the crony capitalism being promoted by this Modi government. Its claims to have offered a “corruption free government” stand shattered.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the communal incident at Atali village in Faridabad district of Haryana. The facts and circumstances leading to the incident clearly point out to the dangerous build up of communal polarisation in an area which is part of the National Capital Region
The Polit Bureau noted the three trends, being pursued by the BJP government, that the Party had noted at its 21st Congress -- the aggressive pursuit of the neo-liberal policies of economic reforms; the relentless onslaughts on the secular democratic foundations of the Indian Republic by the sharpening of communal polarization and the movement towards an authoritarian rule through the erosion of democratic institutions – are all getting aggravated.
The Polit Bureau demands the withdrawal of this communally motivated instruction. If the government wants to observe “good governance day” on December 25, it should do so without involving the schools.
The Polit Bureau conducted an in-depth review of the political-tactical line which the Party has been pursuing. A review report will be placed in the next Central Committee meeting. This is a preparatory step towards preparing the Draft Political Resolution for the Party Congress to be held next year.
The Central Committee called upon the entire Party to conduct a campaign on the following issues: (i) against FDI in railways, insurance and defence production; (ii) against disinvestment in public sector shares; and (iii) against dilution of labour laws.....The party will take up a political and ideological campaign against the offensive of the Hindutva forces and all forms of communalism and the efforts to communalise the education system and text books.
The new BJP President has been chargesheeted and is undergoing trial on the serious charge of murder connected with false encounters when he was the Home Minister in Gujarat. The Election Commission had prohibited him from participating in the election campaign in Uttar Pradesh during the Lok Sabha polls for making communal speeches. By this choice of President, the BJP has declared its intent to pursue the type of communal politics and agenda that was practiced in Gujarat.
At present, the communal forces are once again seeking to raise communal issues and create communal tensions. In the light of the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, the communal campaign has been intensified. This has resulted in outbreak of communal incidents in various parts of the country. The riots in Muzaffarnagar are the most glaring example.
These cowardly attacks once again highlight the urgent need to strengthen intelligence against terror attacks. Governments at the Centre and the state have to coordinate to ensure that the real culprits are arrested. The Polit Bureau calls upon the people of Bihar to maintain and strengthen their unity.
The causes for the communal violence are the same as in the past – religious processions moving through mixed areas and provocations taking place; allegations of harassment of young women belonging to a particular community by persons of another community; inflammatory propaganda which leads to a climate of mistrust and any incident can spark off a wider conflict. But what is more disturbing is that riots are sought to be spread in the rural areas as it happened in Muzaffarnagar. In all such riots, it is the minority community which ultimately bears the brunt of the violence in terms of deaths and destruction of property.
