RSS behaving like an extra-constitutional authority: Raja
Coimbatore: CPI National secretary D Raja today accused RSS of trying to take control of the Governance of the Country, by issuing diktats to Narendra Modi-led NDA government.
"Now RSS is taking central role and sharpening its entry into the governance, thus behaving like an extra- constitutional authority," Raja told reporters here Stating that a man belonging to a minority community was murdered for his alleged involvement in cow slaughter and another youth was murdered for allegedly having a ring tone of Ambedkar's song, Raja claimed that the people, including Dalits and Minorities were living in fear.
Moreover, people like rationalist Narendra Dabolkar and communist leader Govind Pansare in Maharashtra and scholar M M Kalburgi in Karnataka were eliminated, Raja said.
He said his party will organise a nation-wide demonstration on November 24, the birthday of Pansare to create awareness among the public against the "designs" of Sangh Parivar.
On foreign tours of Prime minister Narendra Modi, Raja said "it is not a Make in India campaign, but Make profit in India for which he was inviting big corporates and MNCs to invest in the Country, which meant deregulation, to convert the Indian economy into US-Model economy".
On Bihar elections, Raja said the results will have a serious impact on the National politics and also have bearing on the coming assembly elections to some States like Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, West Bengal and Assam.
As an alternative to BJP and Grand Alliance, Left parties are fighting the elections, so that a change can be projected in Bihar, he said.
Raja said the CPI will stage State-wide demonstration in Tamil Nadu on October 5 to protest against price rise and also the prevailing drought-like situation across the state, particularly in 17 districts.
On the reservation issue raised by Hardik Patel in Gujarat, Raja said some organisations were attempting to scuttle the rights of SC/ST and OBC.
