CPI on Jharkhand Results
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on December 23, 2019 congratulating the people of Jharkhand on their ousting the ruling BJP government from power:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India congratulates the people of Jharkhand for inflicting a crushing defeat to the ruling BJP in the state elections, the results of which are declared on December 23, 2019. It must be noted here that the voters of Jharkhand did not pay any heed to the fervent appeals made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi who addressed almost a dozen election rallies in the state.
The verdict is also a rejection of the CAA and NRC by the people of Jharkhand, whom were repeatedly told about the so called good intentions of both the moves. It is high time for the RSS-controlled BJP government to read the clear writing on the fall warning it on its growing rejection as also seen earlier in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana and Maharashtra.
Jharkhand in fact is a state of tribals with lots of mines. The election verdict therefore is also a slap on the Modi government which claims to be a champion of tribal welfare as well as workers while in fact it is enemy number one of both tribal people and the working class.
The Party takes this opportunity to reiterate its stand that a united opposition can oust BJP from power everywhere.
