The decision of electoral bonds is a ‘regressive move’-Yechury
The Communist Party General Sitaram Yechury has recently countered Bhartiya Janta Party and wrote a letter to the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley criticising the decision of Central Government of electoral bonds.
Yechury in the letter stated that this move of the government is completely regressive and is a route for “dubious funds.”
He said that the bonds will have an effect in the upcoming polls in Tripura as well.
In a statement during Indian Women’s Press Corp (IWPC) in New Delhi, Yechury said, “Tripura will be the BJP’s Waterloo. The unchallenged victory that they claim, will be their Waterloo. We are prepared for that. It is a battle against communal polarization.”
Adding to this, he also stated that the CPM which is now in power only in Tripura and Kerala has enjoyed a brute majority in the northeastern state.
The party has been in power in Tripura for five consecutive terms with Chief Minister Manik Sarkar leading the party for four of them.
“We are prepared that there will be more unscrupulous things that will be done as the elections get closer. They (BJP) are looking to replace the Congress in the state and will be a major implication for future politics in the North-East which remains to be very unstable,” Yechury said.
During this, he also criticised the tying-up of the BJP and IPFT in the state ahead of polls which is yet to be announced for both the ends.
Yechury in his statement against the alliance said, “IPFT was an organization that originated in demands for the separation of Tripura and aligning with it would legitimize separatism.”
This could be the reason why he has written a letter to the Union Finance Minister criticising the move by the government.
