CPM to take part in Sharad rally

“We should not mix the two – a grand political alliance or Mahagathbandhan against the NDA is one thing. The Sanjhi Virasat Bachao (save composite culture) rally is totally different. It is on the lines that we have been advocating for long, that we need to have an alternative political narrative from the RSS and BJP. Mere opposing the NDA politically will not help in the end. We need to address the larger political issue here,” said CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury.

Saying that the Left party had taken a conscious decision of not taking part in the rally convened by RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in Patna, Yechury said, “Yes, we did not join the rally as we did not want to be part of any collective political platform as of now.”

“We are also happy that the Sanjhi Virasat Bachao rally has been shifted from New Delhi to Indore, where the RSS has a much strong foothold. We have to make people understand how this BJP government has miserably failed the people for the past couple of the years,” Yechury added.

Incidentally, the Congress is also slated to join Sharad Yadav’s Indore rally.

“When elections come, then we will think about an electoral alliance. This is not the proper time. Saving our composite culture is a far bigger issue,” Yechury said.

He blamed the RSS and BJP for trying to polarise the people of Bengal on religious lines.

“Look at the incidents of lynching related to cow thefts in Cooch Behar and Assam. It is a standard RSS-BJP pattern of polarisation tactic. They need it for their electoral gains and is the worst form of vote bank politics,” he said.

“In Bengal, this has never happened. With Bangladesh so close to these places and Islamic fundamentalism on the rise in that country, it is an extremely dangerous situation. The people and the Left democratic forces have to be very cautious,” he said.
