CPI today decided to support the no-confidence motion in Parliament against the RSS-BJP led NDA government of Narendra Modi, as it failed to keep up its promise of special status to Andhra Pradesh. CPI National General Secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy criticized that Subramanian Swamy is deliberately trying to mislead by saying that BJP cannot fulfill Congress promise. It is a promise given by the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on the floor of Raya Sabha with the insistence of all parties’ MPs including Arun Jaitley and Venkaiah Naidu. Hence it is a promise of the government that is binding on the next government. It took four years for Chandrababu Naidu to realize that BJP will not keep up its promises. The decision of TDP to come out of NDA is a positive development.
Welcome election results
Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, welcomed the judgment of the people of Gorakhpur, Phulpur (UP) and Araria (Bihar) in giving a crushing defeat to BJP after its defeat in Rajasthan. Both the trends are clear. He said that the drastic reduction of BJP vote is the reflection of the disillusionment of people caused by its pro-corporate, anti-peoples policies. Reddy flayed that the NDA Government miserable failed to fulfill its promises to bring back black money, provide employment and control prices. The communal divide will not always pay. The unity of secular forces will lead to further isolation and defeat of communal BJP.
The CPI has been appealing for the unity of Secular, Democratic and Left forces along with Dalits, Minorities and other social groups to defeat the fascistic trends of the BJP government and also to fight for pro-people economic policies under the banner of united Left. The fast changing developments should pave the way for stronger and wider unity of democratic forces in the country. (NSS)
