9 नवम्बर वह दिन था जब मोदी सरकार के आदेश पर एनडीटीवी इण्डिया चैनल को एक दिन के लिए बंद किया जाना था ताकि मीडिया को ‘राष्ट्रीय सुरक्षा‘ और ‘जिम्मेदार पत्रकारिता‘ का पाठ पढ़ाया जा सके। लेकिन इस अघोषित आपातकाल को पूरे देश में विरोध का सामना करना पड़ा, फलस्वरूप सरकार पीछे हटने पर मजबूर हुई और यह प्रतिबंध लागू होने से रुक गया। जनता इसके बाद राहत की सांसें ले पाती, कि नरेन्द्र मोदी ने अचानक एक घोषणा कर दी वह भी ‘आर्थिक आपातकाल‘ से कम नहीं है। 8 नवम्बर की मध्य रात्रि से 500 और 1000 के नोट गैरकानूनी घोषित कर दिये गये। एक ही झटके में सरकार ने 14 लाख करोड़ रुपये यानि प्रचलन में मौजूद कुल भारतीय मुद्रा के 86 प्रतिशत को रद्दी कागज में बदल दिया।

November 12, 2016

 

CPI(ML) strongly condemns the FIR filed by the Chhattisgarh government against Delhi University professor Nandini Sundar, JNU professor Archana Prasad, CPI(M) Chhattisgarh state secretary Sanjay Parate, Vineet Tiwari from Delhi’s Joshi Adhikar Sansthan and six others. This FIR, ridiculously charging Prof. Sundar and others of the murder of an adivasi villager in Bastar, is clearly an attempt to intimidate all democratic voices speaking out against the ongoing state repression in Chhattisgarh. Apart from murder, they have been charged with criminal conspiracy and rioting.

Save India from the ‘Gujarat Model’ – Say a Firm and Loud NO to ‘Encounter Raj’

November 12, 2016

 

In Gujarat, Narendra Modi had consolidated his rule first by giving a free hand to the Sangh brigade to carry out the infamous Gujarat genocide and then by manipulating the state machinery to engineer a string of extra-judicial killings. And to legitimize this total subversion of the tenets of rule of law he used to invoke the tested and trusted rhetoric of aggressive provincial chauvinism (Gujarat Gaurav) and anti-Pakistan jingoism (his election speeches often used to target Miyan Musharraf). Halfway through his first term Modi seems to be repeating the same trusted tactic on a countrywide scale. The Gujarat model is now truly being sought to be replicated aggressively across the country.
