Left Parties to launch intense agitation against BJP led govt.

IT News
Imphal, Jan 20

Left wing Opposition Political Parties in Manipur is all set to organise 10 days series of protest programme to safeguard the Constitution of India, Secularism and Democracy.
The leadership of the Left Parties and other Secular Opposition Parties are holding a Joint Press Meet at Irawat Bhawan, BT Road, Imphal today announced their stand today.
The agitation will be followed in par with the resolution adopted by National like minded political parties.During the course of discussion  leaders of parties expressed their graved concerns at the alarming deterioration in the livelihood status of the vast majority of our people due to the complete mismanagement of the Indian economy by the Modi  government.
The  economic crisis has pushed the economy to the verge of a recession with a record fall in the country ‘s GDP,unemployment levels higesh in the last half a century ,agrarian distress deepening with rising farmers’ suicides ,massive closures and lay off in industrial units accompanied by rising prices of petroleum products, cooking gas ,vegetables and all essential commodities is making people’s lives more miserable . Modi government has created an economic disaster.
Instead of addressing these issues and providing relief to the people ,soon after assuming office ,the BJP has embarked on a dangerous course of sharpening communal polarization and attacking democratic rights and Constitutional guarantees of the people affecting millions of people and marginalized communities.
The abrogation of Article 370 in a hasty hurry has left the State of Jammu and Kashmir ,nowbifurcated into two union territories under a virtual siege for over 5 months. Human right have been trampled upon and people’s lives ruined.
Communications continue to be disrupted ,its economy ruined ,free movement of the people curtailed. Three former J&K Chief Minister along with hundreds of political leaders and thousand of people continue to be detained .
Soon after ,the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was passed without any  meaningful deliberations in the Parliament by the BJP exercising its electoral majority in a tyrannical fasion.
The CAA,NPR and NRC is a package that is unconstitutional ,which specifically targets the poor ,the downtrodden ,the SC/STs and the linguistic & religious minorities. The NPR is the basic for the NRC.We demand the withdrawal of the CAA and the immediate stoppage of the  nationwide NRC /NPR.All the Chief Minister ,who have announced that they will not implement NRC in their State ,must consider to suspend the NPR  enumeration as this a prelude to NRC.
Peaceful multy – religious, popular protest the CAA,NRC and NPR have eruted all over the country. We stand in solidarity with all such peaceful protests to safeguard the Indian Constitution .
These protests are being met with violent repression in BJP –ruled Stated and in Delhi where the police is under the Home Ministry .All the deaths of peaceful protesters have occurred in BJP ruled states (Uttar Pradesh(21),Assam (5) and Karnataka(2).The police brutalities in Universities ,Institutes of Higher learning and research bodies across the country must be condemned in strongest possible terms.
