Communist Party of India (CPI) has called upon the student community to oppose Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies, which were violating the fundamental rights of the people.
In his inaugural address at All India Political School started at Makdhoom Bhavan here on Saturday, CPI National general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy asked students to protect the right of democracy, education and freedom of expression from the suppressive policies of Modi government.

The student community has to move forward with scientific temper and to solve the problems of the people.
Asking the students to imbibe service attitude along with education, Suravaram stressed the need of strengthening of Leftist and democratic student unions. “The student unions have to obstruct the Sangh Parivar activities. The Modi government has become a puppet in the hands of RSS and Sangh Parivar. RSS office located in Nagpur controlling Modi government with its remote”, he claimed. He said that the education was stooping down to the level of teaching Vedas, including lessons on Rebirth, Astrology and Nava Grahas in school curriculum. These inclusions will obstruct the society, which supposed to be moving forward with scientific temper, he concerned.
