CPIML Manifesto for Loksabha 2019 Released

The Manifesto for the Loksabha elections was released by CPIML in Patna at the Cadre convention held at Bharatiya Nritya Kala Mandir Auditorium on 2 April. The CPIML General Secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya said that the manifesto pledges to end the corrupt crony corporate Raj.

Comrade Diapnkar reiterated that to defeat NDA combine in Bihar is a major responsibility vested in us by the people. Not even a single NDA candidate should win this time in Bihar. We are also working towards intensifying our struggles in our areas of struggle which include parliamentary constituencies where we are contesting, Arrah, Siwan, Karakat and Jahanabad. The CPIML will support candidates fielded by CPM in Ujiarpur and by CPI in Begusarai, while also campaign in Pataliputra, Buxar, Sasaram, Gaya, Banka, Katihar, Kishanganj, Araria, Darbhanga, Khagaria, Motihari etc. to ensure defeat for NDA and victory of Gathabandan candidates. We will work to ensure that every vote against BJP will be caste dicisively vis a vis rampant use of black money in the election. He criticised the BJP Gov’s Electoral Bonds which is meant to end transparency in funding to parties. This is a kind of ‘secret’ donation! While people are forced to enroll through Aadhaar number and their very privacy is being infringed upon, these electoral bonds are meant to hide the corporate donors’ names. During last year Electoral Bonds worth Rs. 18000 crores were purchased, and in the two months of 2019 bonds worth Rs. 17000 crores have already been purchased. It is said that almost 90 percent of this money is going in BJP accounts. Now there is an Act which prevents people of the country from knowing who is actually funding, and which party is being benefitted. This has legally ensured funding to BJP through the Black Money and in return the party can repay likes of Ambanis and Adanis after the elections in the form of alloting projects and handing over national resources. This is corruption under BJP the scale of which is unprecedented in history. And same is with the terror and crime which have been the other hallmarks of Modi government in last five years. It is quite shameful on the part of Modi Gov that our own halicopter was shot down by our own missile in which precious lives of six army personnels were lost. Today BJP is fully exposed and despite the Chowkidar rhetoric, all of its slogans have proved great flops. The people of the nation understand grave attacks on their rights and livelihoods and they are determined to oust this regime in current elections.
