BJP Attempting to Destabilise Bihar

The CPIML Legislative group in Bihar addressed a press conference on 15 July after the conclusion of the monsoon session of the state Assembly. This was addressed by legislative group incharge Rajaram Singh, deputy leader Satyadev Ram and Chief Whip Arun Singh.

The statement issued on this occasion said that the desperate BJP is trying to destabilise the society in Bihar after its ouster from the seat of power. A Vidhan Sabha march organised by this party on 13 July addressed none of the people’s issues but was focussed on creating tension among people. This so called march witnessed BJP cadres bringing chilli powder to instigate violence.

The CPIML MLAs said that they raised inside the Assembly pertinent questions of rising prices and unemployment which are a result of central government’s fascist pro-corporate policies. The party had also held a march on 10 July with the slogan ‘This country will be run by the Constitution, not by the Sangole’ which is installed inside the new parliament building by the Narendra Modi government. The CPIML legislative group raised many important issues and asked questions pertaining to the problems of the people in many constituencies. Now the party will go among masses to tell them the answers it got inside the state assembly on their issue.

The party criticised the Modi government for the devastation caused to the common people during the last 9 years. The ruling party in the centre has become a sanctuary for the most corrupt. The CPIML MLAs have asked the CM Nitish Kumar to withdraw suspension of agitating teachers and start negotiations with them. The CPIML has also demanded to immediately fulfil the demands of the striking ASHA workers in Bihar, start a household survey to guarantee right to housing for every citizen, to modernise the Sone river Canal System and clean the silt from the canals of Gandak and Kosi rivers. The distribution of 200 units of free electricity to every poor household has also been demanded by the CPIML legislative groups.
