The results of elections to the three BJP ruled states, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and MP reveal the extent of alienation of people from BJP. These are not votes for the Congress, but anti-BJP vote. That the people are not pro-Congress is reflected in the defeat of the decade long Congress rule in Mizoram and the failure of its Grand Alliance against TRS in Telengana.

Though Urjit Patel was handpicked by Modi, following Demonetisation, the contradiction between RBI governor and the BJP regime has been mounting as the latter was violating all established norms regarding the autonomy of the Central Bank. However, the immediate provocation behind Urjit's sudden resignation seems to be the attempt to bring RBI under direct saffron stranglehold with the super-imposition of RSS ideologue as its Board member including his highhandedness.

Modi should be brought to account for the coercive deprivation committed on the people
Demonetization super-imposed on India by Modi at the behest of US-based agencies has resulted in the biggest-ever credit squeeze of common people in monetary history. While inflicting a horrific coercive deprivation on the vast majority of common people, demonetization or note-ban has been a corporate weapon in the hands of Modi, the political representative of the most corrupt financial class in India, facilitating the latter to suck out the life-blood of the toiling masses abruptly collapsing their purchasing power.
Make 11th Party Congress at Bengaluru Great Success!
Fight Neo-Liberal Raj, Fight Saffron Fascism; Advance towards Peoples Democracy and Socialism!
No to BJP’s opposition free India; Build an India where Hundred Flowers Blossom, Hundred Thoughts Contend!
Long Live CPI (ML) Red Star!
