NEW DELHI: The CPI(M) on Monday said that it would launch a nationwide campaign to expose the attacks on its cadre by RSS and BJP in Kerala as well as the “storm-troopers” who are doubling up cow vigilantes.
After a three-day meeting of the CPI(M) central committee, party General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said that RSS/BJP is trying to mask their own violent activities by conducting a false campaign against CPI(M) in Kerala.
“This duplicity of the RSS/BJP will be exposed all across the country and the peace loving people of Kerala will give them a fitting reply,” he said adding that the party will launch a nationwide campaign to expose the RSS.
Yechury said that the Central Committee noted with serious concern the concerted campaign of violence unleashed by the RSS-BJP all across Kerala against the CPI(M) and the LDF.
Branding cow protection groups as “storm-troopers”, Yechury said that the central committee expressed grave concern over the attacks on Dalits and Muslims.
“Many state governments have their own laws on cow protection. Thus it should be left to the police to implement those laws,” he said adding that there should be a ban on all such groups.
Questioned on the Uri attack, the CPI(M) General Secretary said that the centre should launch a two-pronged strategy of holding talks with all stake holders in Kashmir as well as Pakistan. “This is what the All Party Delegation had suggested”.
He said that the Central Committee also noted the shifts in India’s foreign policy under the BJP government. “This is the first instance in the history of the non-aligned movement that the Indian Prime Minister is not present at a NAM summit”.
This shows that India is surrendering to the pressure of the United States and emerging as its junior partner.
