At this critical juncture, there are many including the Congress leadership who wants us to forget the past and call for uniting to bring a BJP or RSS free India. Of course, broadest possible unity is presently needed to defeat the Brahminical onslaught unleashed under Modi regime on each and every field. But while joining hands for it, can we forget how the RSS parivar could come to the controlling position and which are the forces who paved the way for it? Can anyone discard the fact that it was almost six decades of Congress hegemony under which first the Keynesian and then the neoliberal policies were pursued to benefit the elite classes, and the communal appeasement-casteism based vote bank politics was pursued leading to present situation when the RSS led forces could win majority in the 2014 elections? Similarly, based on which minimum program a people’s platform, an alternative to Modi rule can be put forward is also of primary importance. Can the progressive forces repeat the same mistake like the one committed by the CPI (M) led Left Front in 2004 by supporting the Congress led UPA rule in the name of replacing the Modi rule? Or, should they strive for building a people’s alternative against the corporate raj and saffronization of BJP rule based on a common minimum program, summarily rejecting the neoliberal policies, communalism and casteism?
While observing the anniversary of emergency declaration, let us be very clear that today’s situation did not fall from the sky all on a sudden, but is the result of the post-1947 ruling class policies pursued by the Congress and other ruling class parties till now. Struggle to put an end to RSS influence in Indian polity and the struggle against the neoliberal policies which have impoverished the masses cannot be seen as separate polls; they have to be carried forward simultaneously to ensure democratization of the society as well as social justice.
