D. Raja, General Secretary, Communist Party of India issued the following statement:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has decided to organise protests against the increasing atrocities particularly on Dalits, Tribals, Minorities and Women on 7th August to 9th August, 2019.
Despite the strong opposition from the Left and other parties, the BJP government is getting all draconian legislations passed in Parliament. The government does it using its number in Parliament and also political manipulations to exert pressure on some parties.
The situation in the country is scary. The people do not feel secure. There is increase in the atrocities on Dalits, Tribals and Minorities. The women and children are not safe.
Those who are the affiliates of RSS-BJP and their outfits are taking the law into their hands and spreading hate and violence. Mob lynching incidents have touched terrific level and trying to dehumanize society.
Horrific crimes are committed against minor girls and Dalits. After Kathuva, Unnao incident has shocked the whole nation. The BJP stands thoroughly exposed by the involvement of its supporters and also by its protection of those accused.
In the wake of snatching the land rights and the right to life from deprived communities, Sonbhadra killings have recently shown again the true face of oppressive governments sitting in Uttar Pradesh and in Centre. All over India, Tribals are facing threat to their livelihood as FRA has not been implemented.
In such emerging alarming situation, CPI calls upon all its Party units and people to protest against the increasing atrocities, particularly on Dalits, Tribals, Minorities and Women on 7th August to 9th August, 2019.
