“CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury today accused the Narendra Modi government of keeping people away from the reality and called upon all secular parties to join hands to oust the NDA government at the Centre.
“Like Manmohan Desai’s formula films, People do not find time to think about the slogan given the previous day,” Yechury said at a seminar on “Role of Left in Current National Situation”.
Alleging that giving slogans was a strategy of Modi, he said, “The prime minister did not speak on the current situation of the country while campaigning in Karnataka. He often speaks on (Jawaharlal) Nehru and (Sardar Vallabhbhai) Patel instead of saying what he has been doing.”
Yechury alleged that anti-romeo squad and private armies like cow protection groups were being raised and constitutional institutions attacked.
The country’s unity was in danger, he claimed.
Minority communities and Dalits were being attacked in the BJP-ruled states, he alleged.
The senior CPI(M) leader also denounced the Modi government’s economic policies.” (Press Report)
