Comrade Provash Ghosh, General Secretary, SUCI (Communist), issued the following statement on 10 August 2023:
It is evidently clear that the BJP engineered the ethnic conflict in Manipur in the North-eastern state of India. Violence of this conflict has already taken away hundreds of lives, scorched thousands of houses and property, wantonly raped women and created deep rift between two inhabiting communities.
The same BJP has again instigated communal riots in Haryana situated in the Northern zone of our country and bulldozed the low huts and slums of the minorities. All these have been done by the BJP in order to harvest benefits in the next parliamentary election by stimulating and expanding ‘‘Hindu Vote Bank’’. Our apprehension is that this conspiratorial murderous scheme to terrorise the minorities will be applied in more areas and states.
No words are strong enough to condemn this heinous destructive political game of the BJP. We call upon all left, democratic and secular parties, forces, and people to unite to resist and defeat this horrifying design of the BJP.
