BJP-RSS’s communal polarisation will sharpen divide among people: CPI (M)

Yechury said the consequences of such communal polarisation would have 'serious consequences for the unity and integrity of India'

CPI(M) on Thursday said the sharpening of “communal polarisation” by the BJP-RSS ahead of the last phase of polling clearly shows that the alleged mainstay of Narendra Modi’s campaign is to increase the divide among the people.

“The BJP-RSS campaign now being unleashed in Varanasi and all over the country clearly shows that the mainstay of Modi’s campaign has always remained sharpening of communal polarisation, notwithstanding the efforts to mislead the people by highlighting the development agenda,” senior party leader Sitaram Yechury said here.

Observing that this showed the “typical RSS-BJP double- speak”, he said the consequences of such communal polarisation on the eve of the last phase of polling would have “serious consequences for the unity and integrity of India and the communal harmony among the people.”

“This game of the BJP must be defeated in the interests of the country and its people,” Yechury said.

The CPI(M) leader’s comments came in the wake of Modi’s election speeches especially in West Bengal and Bihar and the heightened BJP campaign following denial of permission for him to hold a public meeting at a venue of his party’s choice in Varanasi.

    Mr. Yechuri, please tell something new. What you have told now has been worn out due to your repeating the same a thousand times.

      I agree with you these are bogus statements before the cameras. The country was parioned ONLY on the basis of religion and nothing else. stan for the Muslims and Hindustan for the Hindus. Those Muslims who did not want to cross over were allowed to stay. Nothing more was promised. No secular state was envisaged by our founding fathers. The word "secular" was inserted into our Consution by Congress woman Indira hi in 1976 during the dark days of the Emergency as a part of vote bank politics.This country cannot exceed the polarisation that existed in 1947 and there is no M K hi or a Nehru for another parion to happen
