Buoyed by the Delhi Assembly poll results, 17 Left parties have decided to launch a country wide agitation against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government’s divisive politics. BJP’s politics of divisiveness, communalism had caused enmities between religion groups while development has taken the back seat, Left Front chairman Biman Bose said in a statement.

He said that Union government is directly attacking the people and affecting their livelihood by creating divisive politics and Hindutva its prime political agenda. CPI-M leader also said the BJP committed blunders during the campaigning for the Delhi polls like inciting religious sentiments to divide people along communal lines. The party also said that some people in the government made statements such as ‘goli maro’, which were indicative of the BJP crossing the limits, but people of Delhi rejected them.

“The 17 organization of the Left Front and its allies will launch nationwide campaigning from 12 February to 18 February. We would also preach against the Central budget, which aiming to loot the public money in a bid to provide the funds to tycoon businessmen,” said Bose in the statement. Bose also criticised the state government for presenting “direction less state budget.”

“Both the Central and the state government are constantly providing opportunities to the rich- men to raise their capital by depriving the common people. Even arrogance and the politics of vendetta have crossed all limits since BJP returned to power at the Centre for the second consecutive time,” he said.

Yesterday CPI-M Central committee member and Left Front Legislative Party leader Sujan Chakraborty said that the Delhi Assembly poll result shows that the people there have rejected outright the BJP’s politics of divisiveness, communalism and brazen attack on the constitution through Citizenship (Amendment) Act, National Population Register (NPR) and NRC (National Register of Citizens). Bose said country’s economic situation is worst now since country’s Independence and unemployment rose to high since 45 years of India’s Independence.
