CPI(ML) Red Star Calls for Countrywide Protests against Modi-2's Intensification of Neoliberal/Corporate Policies and Fascisation! Stand in Solidarity with the Unnao Rape Victim!
The PB of CPI(ML) Red Star which met Delhi Party Centre on 1st and 2nd August discussed the dangerous developments taking place very fast after Modi-2 took over. In spite of NDA not having majority in the Rajya Sabha, as the opposition parties have failed so far to take any firm stand against Modi-2, with some of them already shifting towards BJP, while many leaders of opposition parties including RS members resigning or joining BJP, it could easily get the amendments to NIA bill, to UAPA, and to RTI adopted along with the adoption of the Triple Talaq Bill. While the first budget of Modi-2 has made a leap towards privatising the remaining PSUs and strategic areas, has fully opening the economy to FDIs taking PPPs to highest levels, the Workers’ Codes announced have cut down all workers’ rights. At the same time, mob lyncnings, forcing Muslims to shout Jai Sriram, attacks on minorities and dalits etc by RSS mobs are intensifying fascisation of the society and state apparatus at all levels. By sending more para-military forces and postponing elections to the assembly, the Kashmir situation is made more explosive. In this situation of all round intensification of neo-liberalization/corporatization, along with fascisation, when the plight of the workers , peasantry, and all oppressed sections including dalits, Adivasis, women and others are worsening fast, when the plight of Unnao rape victim and her family reveal the fearful criminalization of the state machinery, the PB calls on all SCs and SOCS to organize campaign against these policies of Modi-2,joining hands with like- minded forces wherever possible.
