Organizations of the struggling left, democratic and bahujan forces, of workers and all oppressed classes and sections including Dalits, Adivasis, backwards, minorities and women, and people’s movements who oppose corporate-fascist forces and struggle for people’s alternative for democracy and development joined hands and organized a militant march today from Mandi House demanding the cancellation of Assam’s NRC which has made more than 19 lakh people stateless, and the Modi-Shah team’s efforts to carry forward this communal fascist NRC process for consolidation of the majoritarian Hindutva vote bank in order to perpetuate the hegemony of the RSS parivarand to turn India in to a Hindurashtra.

While intensifying this fascisation of all fields of life, Modi-2 is consealing the fact that its economic policies for last five years has thrown the economy in to doldrums. Millions of workers are losing jobs, unemployment is rampant. Distress in the agricultural sector is intensifying.  To cover it up, every field, every issue is communalized.. An atmosphere of hatred and intolerance is created, leading to mob lynching like incidents spreading fast. Fascist terror is unleashed to impose its dictates. This is what is happening to the people of J&K where Article 370 and 35 A were abrogated on 5th August, downgrading the state to two union territories without consulting the people of the state in any form. The whole state is militarized, put under prohibitory orders and all communications are cut down. Refusing to recognize the diversity of the country with different languages and culture, there are attempts to impose Hindi-Hindu-Hindustan slogan.  They have started talking about one nation, one party also!

The NRC/Assam constituted unconstitutionally and speeded up by the supreme Court,  announced its final list on 31st August declaring 19,06,657 people  stateless. Large number of them are Adivasis and dalits including those taken from Jharkhand, Bihar etc by Britishers for plantations, Nepalese, and almost half of them from Muslim  minority, all of whom presently residents of the state. They are given 120 days to get clearance from Foreigners’ Tribunals or from higher courts. Otherwise they are going to be thrown in Detention Camps. This is a most inhuman 

Modi-2 is trying to get the Citizenship (Amendments) Bill, 2016, which was passed by  Lok Sabha on 8th January, 2019, adopted by the parliament somehow. It is against the secular values of the Constitution and for communally discriminating against Muslims in line with the Two-nation theory initiated by Savarkar, while granting citizenship to migrants (from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan) including Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, and Christian.

BJP chief ministers are clamoring for NRC in all states to divert people’s attention from burning issues caused by increasing recession. The Ministry of Home Affairs’ Notification of 31st July, calls for preparing the National Population Register (NPR) at all India level on a time bound manner by 30th September, 2020.  If this NPR process is taken up based on the Citizenship (Amendments) proposed in BJP’s Bill, it will make almost 40 to 50 million people, who are born in India and presently staying here, stateless. It will create a horrific situation and an unprecedented humanitarian tragedy. So we demand that the whole process of NPR should be abandoned and all people presently living in this country and born here should be recognized as Indian citizens as per the Constitutional principles.

While comrades Arun Maji presided, representing different organizations comrades KN Ramachandran, Parvej Mian, Thakur Khanal, Sheomangal Siddhankar, Jyothi, KK Niogi, Uday Jha, KK Singh, Vimal Trivedi, Radheysyam  and others spoke. A memorandum was presented to the president by a delegation including comrades Umakant, Pancholi and Narendar appealing for prompt action to get the NRC process which is dividing the people and weakening the country stopped and the Constitutional rights of the people are protected.

The People’s Front against NRC and Fascism shall carry forward the struggle trying to mobilize all like-minded forces for the realization of the demands put forward. Presently the constituent organizations of the Front are CPI(ML) Red Star, New Democratic Party of India, Lok Samiti, Citizens for Democracy, Bahujan Communist Party, IFTU (Sarvahara), TUCI, Lok Paksh, All India Milli Council, Mul Pravah All India Nepali Unity Society, CPI(ML) New Proletarian, Democratic People’s Lawyers’ Association,Basthi Suraksha Manch,  All India Peace Mission, All India Christian Minority Front and Jan Sangharsh Manch (Haryanna).

Compatriots, struggling people of our country,

  1. We are living in an extremely difficult situation when every field, every issue is communalized by the Manuvadi Hindutva forces under Modi raj. It is creating atmosphere of hatred and intolerance, and unleashes fascist terror to impose its dictates. This is what is happening to the people of J&K where Article 370 and 35-A were abrogated on 5th August, downgrading the state to two union territories without consulting the people of the state in any form, and violating Constitutional provisions. The whole state is militarized, put under prohibitory orders and all communications and democratic rights are cut down. This Convention strongly condemns these steps of Modi-2 and demand the restoration of the special rights of the people of J&K including their right to self determination. It demands the immediate withdrawal of the army to barracks and restoration of all communications and fundamental rights of the citizens.
  2. This Convention severely condemns the hasty way the NRC/Assam was constituted unconstitutionally and speeded up by the supreme Court, the final list was announced on 31st August declaring 19,06,657 people as stateless. Large number of them are Adivasis including Adivasis and dalits taken from Jharkhand, Bihar etc by Britishers for plantations, Nepalese, and almost half of them from resident Muslim minority, all of whom presently residents of the state. They are given 120 days to get clearance from Foreigners’ Tribunals or later from higher courts. Otherwise they shall be thrown in Detention Camps. This is a most inhuman step condemned by democratic forces internationally and within the country. This Convention demands immediate cancellation of the NRC/Assam list prepared against the constitutional principles; it demands that citizenship should be provided for all, as they are residents of the state and/or born in India.
  3. Modi-2 is trying to get the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, which was passed by the Lok Sabha on 8th January, 2019, adopted by the parliament somehow. It is against the secular values of the Constitution and for communally discriminating against Muslims in line with the Two-nation theory initiated by Savarkar, while granting citizenship to migrants (from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan) including Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, and Christian. This Convention calls for the immediate withdrawal of this Bill.
  4. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs’ Notification of 31st July, the Central Government has already decided to prepare and update the National Population Register (NPR) at all India level on a time bound manner, as the NRC/Assam was finalized, by starting the field work for it from 1st day of April, 2020 to 30th September, 2020. If this NPR process is taken up based on the Citizenship (Amendments) proposed in BJP’s Bill, with the aim of driving out ‘all migrants’, it will become binding on the whole population to prove their citizenship.  It is apprehended that almost 20 millions or more people, who are born in India and presently staying here, may lose citizenship. It will create a horrific situation and an unprecedented humanitarian tragedy. This Convention demands that the whole process of NPR should be abandoned recognizing the criteria for citizenship based on the Constitution and international covenants adopted by the government of India. This Convention demands that construction of Detention Camps should be stopped forthwith.

In order to take these decisions of this Convention to the people and to create public opinion in support of it, all organizations who are part of this Convention, together other like-minded organizations, shall organize a people’s  mobilization on 15th October at Juntar Mantar to put these demands before the government; all the constituents of this move shall constitute a joint forum and carry forward the campaign with the slogan “No to NRC/Assam, No to NPR, Citizenship is the fundamental right of every resident and everyone born in India”, coordinating with similar movements started in different states, to save the country from a horrific humanitarian tragedy and Constitutional crisis created by the fascist RSS/BJP regime.

Appeal to all compatriots, to the workers and oppressed classes/sections including dalits, adivasis, backwards, minorities and women, to all struggling left, democratic and Bahujan forces, to mass organizations and people’s movements

 

We are living in an extremely difficult situation when every field, every question is communalized by the Brahmanical Hindutva forces under Modi raj.  It is creating atmosphere of hatred and intolerance, and unleashes fascist terror to impose its dictates. This is what is happening to National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam also, excluding 19, 06,657 residents from final list. These include almost half of it from Muslim minorities, large numbers of Nepalese, Adivasis from Jharkhand, Bihar etc taken by Britishers for plantations in Assam. Inhuman situation is created throwing these people to uncertainty, with the threat of becoming stateless and thrown to Detention Camps, without any human rights.

Besides, the BJP is calling for NRCs in W. Bengal, Delhi, Bihar etc excluding Muslim minorities dubbing them as infiltrators from Bangladesh, contrary to facts. The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, moved by BJP is against secular values of the Constitution and to communally discriminate Muslims. Modi-2 is trying to get this bill passed somehow, and to conduct an all India survey next year for a National People’s Register (NPR), demanding all residents of India to prove their citizenship! These are fascist move towards its Hindurashtra goal, to cover up the intensifying economic recession which is further impoverishing the masses and making many more millions jobless,!

In this grave situation, it is our task to mobilize people and create public opinion with the demands: Cancel the NRC, Assam, Withdraw Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, Withdraw Home ministry order for all India survey for NPR (Peoples’ National Register). All residents of India are its citizens and citizenship should be based on following criteria:  (a) Any resident of India, any person born in India is citizen of India. This was the case till the 1986 Act and is the case in most of the countries all over the world; (b) Any person either of whose parents are/ were citizens of India must be eligible for citizenship; (c )Any person who is resident in India for 5 years and intends to stay further should be eligible for citizenship; and (d) Any refugee who is fleeing from oppression, or whose democratic rights are not protected in the country from which he/she is fleeing, should be eligible for right to stay in India leading eventually to citizenship.

We appeal to all of you, representatives of the organizations to participate in a Convention at GPF from 6 to 9 pm on 13th September to declare our resolve to carry forward this movement and to decide about our future campaign plans.

CPI(ML) Red Star, New Democratic Party of India, Lok Samiti, Citizens for Democracy, Bahujan Communist Party, Sarvahara Lokpaksh, Inquilabi Mazdoor Kendra, Milli Council, All India Nepali Unity Society-Mul Pravah, Lok Paksh, CPI(ML) New Proletariat, Democratic People’s Lawyers’ Association, All India Peace Mission, Social Democratic Party of India, All India Christian Minority Front.

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
