Karat warns Hindu kingdom a big threat to secular India

VIJAYAWADA: CPM politburo member Prakash Karat on Friday charged that the growing nexus between Hindutva forces and corporate groups under the Narendra Modi-led government during the last nine years is undermining all constitutional bodies and democratic systems.

“This will pave the way for a one-party Hindutva Rashtra, which will pose a great danger to the country,” Karat warned at a Prachara Bheri that left parties CPM and CPI jointly organised coinciding with the birth anniversary of Dr B.R. Ambedkar.

The CPM politburo member, along with CPI national secretary Binay Viswam, called on party workers to defeat the BJP and its allied parties in the forthcoming 2024 general elections. They asserted that left parties will bring all opposition parties on a single platform to counter the RSS-guided BJP-led government, which is destroying the secular fabric of the country and undermining public interests with its pro-corporate policies.

As part of the Prachara Bheri, the left parties organised a big procession from Kalakshetram to Makineni Basavapunnaiah Vignana Kendram via the Police Control Room, MG Road and Eluru Road.

Prakash Karat pointed out that elected state governments of opposition parties are not being allowed to function, while BJP-ruled states are enacting legislations, which are against the secular character of the country and the principles of the Indian Constitution. He said the time has come for secular and democratic parties to stand together and fight against the Hindutva-corporate regime.

The CPM leader felt that ruling YSRC in Andhra Pradesh is functioning as desired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “In the south, except Andhra Pradesh, the remaining opposition parties ruling Telangana, Tamil Nadu and Kerala are against BJP. However, YSRC is implementing every scheme started by the centre,” he pointed out.

CPI state secretary K. Ramakrishna, CPM state secretary V. Srinivasa Rao and left party leaders Ch. Babu Rao and Donepudi Kasinath were among those present.
