CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Wednesday alleged that demonetisation and haphazard implementation of GST had broken the backbone of Indian economy and held the Narendra Modi government responsible for the economic “downturn”.

Citing the defeat of the ABVP, student wing of the RSS, in the recent student union elections in the JNU and in the Delhi University, the Left leader claimed that the countdown for the exit of NDA government has already begun. “The Narendra Modi government is responsible for the downturn in economic growth of the country. First demonetisation then implementation of GST in a haphazard manner has broken the backbone of Indian economy,” Yechury alleged.

“The farmers are committing suicide due to debts and the government is totally ignorant towards it. The government is not taking any action to recover the loans given to big corporate houses,” he claimed at a press conference in Kolkata.

Yechury alleged that the BJP and its ministers are trying to mislead the nation by putting the blame of economic on “technical reasons”.

Referring to the victory of Left alliance in JNU and the Congress student wing NSUI defeating the ABVP in two out of four seats in the DUSU polls, Yechury said, “These election results are a reflection of the changing atmosphere in the country and I can say that the countdown for the exit of the Narendra Modi government has already begun,”.

He alleged that “the BJP’s communalism is a major threat to the secular fabric of the country”. Yechury claimed it was due to the policies of the previous Congress government that the BJP was able to come to power.

On the controversy over restrictions on immersion of Durga idols, Yechury said such decisions by the state government are a reflection of the “competitive communalism” practiced by the TMC and the BJP in Bengal. “This is a result of competitive communalism that is being practiced by the TMC and the BJP in Bengal in order to create communal polarisation.

“The TMC is pursuing politics of appeasement of minorities and the BJP is trying to fan majority communalism. In this way both are helping each other grow,” he said.

      SITARAM YECHURY ABOVE COMMENTS ON COUNTDOWN OF MODI GOVERNMENT IS REJECTED. LEFT HAS BEEN REJECTED ALL OVER INDIA. A SMALL WIN AT UNIVERSITIES IS NOT REFLECTION OF NATIONAL MINDEST. SECULAR FABRIC WAS BROKEN BY CONGRESS AND LEFT IN INDIA BY PLEASING ONLY MUSLIMS. CONGRESS AND LEFT ARE NOT CUSTODIAN OF SECULARISM.

        Count down for Modi ouster has begun - roars the communist Yechury, having ruined the two states where his party ruled. Congress held on to power by favoritism / nepotism and distributing freebies which dearly cost the economy. Everyone compares the price of petrol under congress regime, when in reality the money that was to be used for development was being diverted to 'subsidies' the cancer which has pulled down the economy. with slew of ambiguous provisions in taxation laws the congress ran a well oiled apparatus which fetched money to everyone in the system - even their own PM Rajiv Gandhi admitted on the floor of Loksabha that only 15 paise of every rupee spent by government reaches the actual beneficiary. The present government is systematically plugging all the leakages hence congis/commies are worried. The election of JNU is no barometer of entire country, a breeding ground for communists surviving on taxpayers hard earned money.

          Did we all forget those ‘Ache Din’ promises? Black money: Did every Indian get 15 lakhs? Petrol: When Crude is only $50, why we pay Rs 75 per liter whereas MMS was selling 65 Rs at a time of $150 for Crude? How did India become the only one country where Petrol prices daily increase when the crude price steeply declining? Cooking Gas: Isn’t that a big cheating that removing LPG subsidy after increasing the prices steadily? Farmers: Why our farmers continue to suicide, when our stock exchange indexes rise? Currency ban: What did we achieve from this Thuklak reform except people standing on long queues? GST: Can we tell one essential item that has its price gone down after GST? Military: How come we lost more of our beloved Jawans in BJP rule? Communal Harmony: Why people are being killed in the name of Beef and Cow?
