Karat Targets UPA, BJP

Karat alleged that Christians and Muslims in BJP-ruled states are being targeted with a view to deprive their rights as citizens of the country.
Hyderabad | 7th August 2010
Communist Party of India (Marxist) general-secretary Prakash Karat on Saturday said that communalism is injurious to the unity of the county and of its people.

Addressing the inaugural session of the 3-day Central Committee meeting, Karat said that Christians and Muslims in the BJP-ruled states of Gujarat, Karnataka or MP are being targeted with a view to deprive their rights as citizens of the country.

Referring to the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, the Left leader said that the Gujarat Government had used the police force and the administrative arm of the state to attempt a cover-up of the heinous crime. He said, "the police and State machinery in Gujarat have been used to cover-up the pogroms and stage encounter killings."

Karat said that this should serve as a reminder of what can be in store if the forces which work on the basis of the Hindutva ideology ever come to power.

He called on the Central and state governments to not make any concession on terrorist violence, wherever it comes from.

The Left leader also targeted the UPA government for letting food stocks rot in godowns while millions of the country's poor are going hungry due to the spiralling prices of essential commodities. The CPM leader said that while the FCI godowns have 60 million tonnes of food grains, the distribution system is working to exclude the poor from getting their hands on the grains.

The veteran leader said that this shows the callous and arrogant attitude of the government which compounds its flaws by refusing to admit its mistakes.
