CPI(M) kickstarts its year-long celebration to mark centenary of ICP formation

Kolkata, Oct 17 (UNI) To mark the centenary of the formation of the Indian
Communist Party (ICP) as an emigre unit in Tashkent by the Second World
Congress of the Communist Third International in 1920, the CPI(M) on
Thursday kickstarted its year-long celebration at the Netaji Indoor Stadium
here.
CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury addressed the programme
organised to mark centenary of the formation of the Indian Communist Party
(ICP).
Mr Yechury accused BJP and the RSS of "trying to destroy" the country's
secular fabric and letting loose a "reign of fear and distrust" across the country
by implementing the "contentious" NRC and CAB.
He said, " BJP is trying to propagate its ideology of Hindu nationalism by
replacing the principles of Indian nationalism, which had its roots in the
Independence movement. "
"The BJP government is talking about extending the NRC process in the
whole of India. This is uncalled for and it is being done only with the aim of
targeting certain sections of people and to create polarization," the CPI(M)
general secretary said.
He expressed concern over alleged attempts by BJP and several other
Hindutva outfits to build up communal frenzy over NRC and CAB.
Besides Yechury, State leaders of the party- Surjya Kanta Mishra, Biman
Bose, Mohammed Salim attended the programme to mark centenary of the
formation of the Indian Communist Party (ICP)
However, the Congress has not been invited for the programme.
