COIMBATORE:Left parties including the CPI, CPI(M) and CPI(ML-Liberation) staged a demonstration at Tatabad here on Monday against the ‘corrupt’ BJP government at the Centre.

The protesters criticised Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s statement about being proud of the BJP government’s performance during its first year in power. They said the situation has now turned sour for the BJP in view of the corruption charges against its ministers.Though the BJP claims that the government’s performance has been good, the public have come to know its real nature recently, said P R Natarajan, former MP from Coimbatore.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is talking much about Swachh Bharat, Yoga, Sanskrit, etc. However, he is silent on the Lalit Modi issue, besides the Vyapam scam, in which over 45 people have died in mysterious circumstances. The Prime Minister should take action against those involved in these incidents immediately,” he added.

The protestors demanded the resignation of External affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in connection with the Lalit Modi affair. 

They also said that even though the Enforcement (ED) Directorate had summoned Lalit Modi, there was no signs of getting him arrested. The Centre should take steps to bring Lalit Modi to India, they said.
