CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury on Sunday said that by making Yogi Adityanath the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, the BJP and its ideological parent the RSS have sent out a clear message that “they want to transform India into a Hindu Rashtra”. It is also a clear message by the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh that the backward classes, minorities and other oppressed sections of society “will have to accept upper caste leadership”, the Communist Party of India-Marxist leader said at a public rally here.

He also accused Yogi Adityanath of always speaking against the Muslim and the Dalits. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said Yogi Adityanath was earlier accused of inciting communal tensions. “He has always been the symbol of communal violence, riots, intolerance and hatred,” Vijayan said.

“One cannot forget the fact that he has gone to the extreme of comparing Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan with Jamaat-ud-Dawa leader Hafiz Saeed. He also tarnished the image of socio-cultural leaders ranging from Aamir Khan to Mother Teresa and also asked those reluctant to do ‘suryanamaskar’ to go to Pakistan.”

Vijayan said that at a time when the Ayodhya Ram temple issue was relegated to the background of Indian politics, Adityanath triggered a venomous communal campaign to bring it to the centre of BJP agenda.

“By making a person having criminal background the Chief Minister of the largest state, the message the BJP sends to the nation is that they will continue to try to capture power by resorting to communal riots,” the Chief Minister said.

He said only a party with sheer contempt for secularism and democracy can elevate such person as the Chief Minister.

                  In stan people of Sikh heritage are excluded from census. That means that they are invisible and non existent and therefore excluded from the potion India our politician fall over backward to appease our minorities. Mr.Yechuri,s comments should be treated with the contempt it deserve because it is based on political expediency at best and utter thoughtlessness at worst
