Sat, Jul 23, 2016 at 3:54 PMCPI rally followed by procession at Ludhiana Railway Station
Ludhiana: 23rd July 2016: (Punjab Screen Bureau):
Starting from the death of Rohit Vemulla to merciless beating of poor Dalits by those connected with Sangh Parivar to the foul language used by the former Vice President of Uttar Pradesh BJP has thoroughly exposed the nefarious designs of the forces of Hindutva to split the society on caste lines. These incidents are not spontaneous, these are a reflection of the anti Dalit casteiest approach of the RSS and followers of its ideology of Hindutva. Various speakers speaking on the occasion of a rally followed by procession organized by the Communist Party of India (CPI) Ludhiana today at the Railway Station Ludhiana cautioned that these will result into splitting of the society on caste lines and religious beliefs which they very unashamedly want to use in the coming elections.
Dr Arun Mitra – Asst. Sec. said that since the Modi Led BJP government has come to power there has been a serious attempt to rewrite the history totally negating the contribution of the the congress and communists in the freedom struggle. Several BJP ruled state governments have removed the names of Jawahar Lal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi from the history books. The role of Bhagat Singh and his colleagues is being belittled and instead the name of Damodar Savarkar who had begged mercy from the British and assured of his cooperation to the British for his release from the Andeman Nikobar jail is being highlighted. Nathuram Godse, the assassin of Mahatma Gandhi is being eulogized. The universities are being made to be governed by the RSS ideologues while the progressive forces are being suppressed. The incidents of maligning the students and the teachers of JNU and then arresting Kanhiya Kumar on the basis of doctored video films has thoroughly exposed the designs of the present government. Organizations affiliated to Sangh Parivar have been given free hand. Obscurantist thoughts are being propagated. It is unfortunate that the Prime Minister is citing the examples of plastic surgery in the ancient India whereby the head of animal could be sutured to the human body. Even the most advanced stem cell research is being highlighted to be present in the ancient India.
Com D P Maur said that in the name of cow protection Akhlaq was lynched by these fundamentalists and now instead of punishing the culprits the family of Akhlaq is being framed. Those involved in the leather removal of the dead cows are being beaten and even forced to eat cow dung. Cases are being fabricated against them. Such incidents have happened even in Punjab but the Akali BJP government has turned a blind eye. He further said that the country’s sovereignty and integrity are in danger since the FDI has been allowed full scale even in the defense sector. Situation in Kashmir has deteriorated to the lowest level ever. Prices are soaring high and people are waiting for the Ache Din to come.
Dr Gulzar Singh Pandher said the CPI will do its best to foil the nefarious deigns of these forces. Law and order in the state is at its lowest ebb. Crime against all sections particularly women and the poor is on the rise. Police acts under pressure of their political masters so the justice is denied to them.
