Kochi Sitaram Yechury, General Secretary of the CPI (M) has announced that the party will go to any extent including aligning with Islamic extremist forces to defeat the Sanatana Dharma from taking roots in the country.Inaugurating the State Party Conference of the CPI (M) at Ernakulam, Yechury said the Hindutwa forces that include the BJP and the RSS are the main threats faced by the country. The CPI (M) secretary defined the BJP-led Government at the Centre as corporate-communalists.Interestingly, Yechury did not mention anything against the Indian National Congress or the Islamist extremists in his 90-minute long inaugural speech. He said the decision of the Narendra Modi Government to withdraw the Farms Bill was the biggest victory scored by the CPI (M)-led working class in the country. ? This marks the beginning of the end of the BJP rule. We are sure of dethroning the BJP from power in the 2024 Lok Sabha election, he declared.Yechury?s refrain from attacking the Congress even once during his speech is proof of the undeclared alliance between the CPI(M) and the Indian National Congress. Though the CPI (M) and Congress are alliance partners in the rest of the country, the situation in Kerala is different where both the parties are sworn rivals.As part of appeasing the Muslims in the State who were upset over the statements made by former Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan that Islam was spreading all over the country at a break-neck speed and Love Jihad was a mission by the Islamic fundamentalists to convert India into the Islamic Republic, the CPI(M) leaders removed all pictures and posters with the photographs of V S Achuthanandan. It may be remembered that Achuthanandan is the lone surviving member of the 32 party leaders who walked out of the CPI in 1964 to form the CPI (M).The delegates attending the four-day event has a considerable presence of Muslims, especially those who switched over to the party from various fundamentalist outfits.
