New Delhi: Communist Party of India (Marxist) General Secretary Sitaraman Yechury on Friday said the BJP government is aggressively pursuing a Hindutva agenda and promoting a corporate nexus.
“The period since the 22nd Congress has seen a further consolidation of the BJP, which being in the government is aggressively pursuing the Hindutva agenda of the fascistic RSS,” he said while releasing a draft political resolution for the 23rd Party Congress here.
Alleging a multi-pronged attack through the pursuit of rabid neo-liberal reforms, he said the BJP is promoting crony capitalism, legalising political corruption and imposing full-fledged authoritarianism.
“Post-2019 elections saw BJP return to form the government with more seats and higher percentage of votes by scripting a communal nationalist jingoistic narrative,” he said.
He added that the Centre was undermining the foundations of the country’s secular democratic Constitution by dissolving the state of Jammu and Kashmir and abrogating Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution and legislated the anti-Constitutional Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
“During these four years, the BJP government has completely surrendered to US strategic, political and security designs, emerging as a steadfast subordinate ally of US imperialism.” He added: “The party must work for a broad mobilisation of all secular forces against Hindutva communalism.”
