THE agitation started by the farmers of BJP ruled Maharashtra from 1st June is continuing. They were compelled to agitate as the government was unresponsive to suicide by hundreds of farmers in distress. Except in UP where the new BJP government announced a loan waiver, in all BJP ruled states farmers are in distress even after bumper harvests. Their benefit is taken by the corporate controlling the markets, with prices of all essential commodities remaining high. Condition in other states is also not much different. The demonetization, beef control like policies of Modi government along with intensifying corporatization/liberalization are increasing unemployment manifold. As commercialization is allowed to thrive in all fields, education, healthcare, housing like essential fields are becoming inaccessible for increasing number of families. Studies by many agencies show that corruption is increasing day by day. Altogether, inequalities between the vast majority of the masses and the elite sections are increasing fast. Any amount of intolerance, vigilante-actions, demonization of the minorities, dalits, Kashmiris, conflict with Pakistan or China promoted by the Modi regime and RSS parivar cannot obliterate the increasing people’s opposition when it has just completed three years in power. 
