” Secular Democracy in India has never come under such a severe strain as we are witnessing today. Only the fighting unity of the Indian patriots can overcome this challenge and take India forward towards the creation of a better India for our people. It is this unity in struggles of the vast majority of our people which will create the alternative people’s narrative to the current Modi narrative.” – Sitaram Yechury, General Secretary, CPI(M) in ‘People’s Democracy’ dated 13th August 2017.
