Sitaram Yechury addresses massive CPI(M) statewide rally in Patna, attacks Centre over its anti-people policies


New Delhi: Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) General Secretary, Sitaram Yechury sharply attacked the anti-people, pro-corporate, authoritarian and communal policies of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) regime led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. He recalled the lead given by Bihar and Jayaprakash Narayan in the struggle against the 1975 Internal Emergency, which succeeded in restoring democracy, saved the country and the Constitutional order.

He said this while addressing a massive state-wide public meeting organised by Bihar’s CPI-M state committee on Thursday of over 25,000 people from 35 districts, at the Gandhi Maidan in Patna. This was a part of the CPI-M’s nationwide campaign from September 14 to September 22 against the PM Modi-led BJP-RSS government. 

Addressing the public rally, Yechury stated, “Today again the time has come to save democracy, secularism, the Constitution and the country from the BJP-RSS. He declared that all the left and secular forces in Bihar and throughout India will come together and mobilise the people to oust the PM Modi led regime in 2024. Like in 1974, the road to Indraprastha will again begin from Pataliputra. In this context he hailed the coming together of all secular and left forces in Bihar, which would be a model for the whole country”.

Dr Ashok Dhawale attacked the PM Modi led regime’s policies which led to astronomical price rise, unemployment, poverty and hunger, and attacked the working class, peasantry, agricultural workers, women, youth and students. It is shamelessly selling off the country to its crony corporates, and is using the British imperialist policy of divide and rule on the basis of religion and caste. He called for strengthening people’s resistance to throw this regime out of power. 

Lalan Choudhary, Awadhesh Kumar, Ajay Kumar and other state leaders spoke on the serious problems of the people of Bihar, and said that with the new secular and left political alignment, the BJP would find it difficult to win even a single Lok Sabha seat in Bihar. 

The rally was also addressed by CCM Awadhesh Kumar, State Secretariat members Sarvodaya Sharma, Arun Kumar Mishra, Vinod Kumar, Shyam Bharati, Rajendra Prasad Singh, Rampari, Sanjay Kumar and Bhola Divakar. It was presided over by Ajay Kumar, MLA. 

On Wednesday, Sitaram Yechury met Lalu Prasad Yadav and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in Patna and held discussions with them. He also addressed the media just after the public meeting.
