Rohtak, February 16: The state secretariat of the CPI(M) has said that the BJP government instead of fulfilling its constitutional obligations of keeping social interests supreme is playing petty politics. The BJP government is not serious in resolving the jat reservation agitation continuing for the last many days. Its intention is to deepen the caste polarisation for petty political gains by keeping the issue prolonged by not initiating any credible and meaningful dialogue.
The state secretary Surender Singh, alleged that ministers of the government, including the Chief Minister, and BJP leaders are speaking in different language at different times. At one time they say one thing while at other time they say other things. With whom they would talk and with whom they won’t, sometimes they ask for unconditional dialogue while at other time they put conditions for dialogue. Owing to these tricks the situation in the state has become fragile. Common masses find themselves surrounded by a feeling of fear and violence.
CPI(M) is of the clear view that the state govt. should immediately stop these tricks and politicking. It should give priority to restoration of normalcy in the state by resolving the matter through consistent dialogue with open mind so that social harmony and peace prevails in the state.
The CPI(M) has appealed to the people of the state to remain vigilant for protecting their social unity and harmony against any acts of provocation. It is also the responsibility of the agitators that they do not let the situation go out of control and that any mischievous element may not exploit the situation. The last year’s tragic situation should be avoided by all means.
