Imphal, May 23,
The Central Secretariat meeting of Popular Front of India, in a statement issued in the context of the Lok Sabha election result trends, has said that the the victory of BJP led alliance does not reflect the ultimate defeat of secular politics in India. Rather it has only proved the success of vehement communal propaganda and the failure of secular parties in taking appropriate steps to counter RSS-BJP strategies, a statement said. It added that the meeting pointed out that in spite of these failures, the idea of India as an all inclussive secular democratic socialist republic will survive.
“The meeting reminded that the election should serve as an eye opener to all. Democracy can survive only with an accountable government and a responsible opposition. Both groups are duty bound to protect people’s rights and guard the constitutional and democratic values.
“Those sections of the society that have always been at receiving end of the communal politics and have cherished a regime change doesn’t have to fall into despair. The marginalized and victimized sections have to continue their efforts of empowering themselves by aligning with all positive elements in the country”, the statement added.
