CPM publishes 'fact sheet' on the '10 big lies' of the Modi government

NEW DELHI: before its national agitation against the National Registry of Citizens and the National Population Registry, official Toast Karat and members of the Association of Democratic Women of All India published on Tuesday an information sheet on the 10 big lies of the Modi government.

The leftist parties will organize a week-long protest from New Year's Day until January 7 to protest the assault of the BJP government through CAA-NRC-NPR. The joint protest of CPM, CPI, CPI (ML), All India Forward Bloc and Revolutionary Socialist Party will also highlight the government's failure to curb the economic slowdown.

CPM has accused BJP of trying to portray protests against CAA-NRC-NPR as a Hindu-Muslim problem. Calling protests nationwide a problem that affects the Constitution and all Indian citizens, CPM invoked Swami Vivekananda's speech in Chicago in 1893 in which he said he is proud to belong to a nation that has protected the persecuted and refugees of all. religions and all the nations of the earth.

In his strong demolition of the prime minister Narendra Modi and interior minister Amit Shah , the CPM fact sheet accused them of repeating lies after lies, claiming, among other things, that CAA is not discriminatory. The party said that while the constitutional definition of citizenship does not discriminate against any person on the grounds of religious belief, caste, class or gender when acquiring citizenship in India, CAA changes make religion a reason to become a citizen.

The party dismissed the government's claims that CAA and NRC are not linked and that NPR is a separate exercise that has nothing to do with NRC. The tragedy for India is that the prime minister himself is the head of the lie-making factory, CPM said.
