Bhubaneswar: Accusing NDA of ‘undermining’ Parliamentary democracy and ‘concentrating’ all powers in the Prime Minister’s hands, the CPI today said the BJP must be defeated in Bihar Assembly polls.
“Ever since BJP-led NDA came to power at the Centre, Parliamentary democracy has been considerably undermined, while all powers are concentrated with Prime Minister…this is dangerous,” CPI national secretary D Raja told reporters here.
Asking BJP to remember that India does not have Presidential form of government, Raja charged NDA government with patronising corporates at the cost of poor farmers and being dictated by ‘Sangh Parivar’ outfits.
“The BJP appears to have become a political arm of the RSS. As a result, the social and secular fabric of the country is threatened and there seems to be a challenge to the Constitution,” he claimed.
Under these circumstances, there is a need to stop and defeat BJP in the Bihar Assembly elections as it would have considerable impact on national politics, Raja said.
The CPI, which has taken cognisance of the coming together of some political parties for Bihar polls, would consult other Left outfits on the issue before taking a decision, he added.
