Left parties say observe Dec 6 as `Defend Constitution and Secularism Day'

New Delhi, Nov 24 (UNI) Six Left parties led by Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Saturday appealed to the people to observe December 6, which coincided with the 26th anniversary of the demolition of the Babri Masjid, as `Defend the Constitution and Secularism Day' in defence of secularism and democracy in the country.
The Left parties observed that the RSS-led outfits had begun a campaign to demand that the central government pass a legislation/ordinance to facilitate the building of the Ram temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya, bypassing the Supreme Court.
Strongly opposing what it called this effort to ''subvert the judicial verdict on the Ayodhya dispute'', they said the Sangh Brigade cannot be allowed to subvert the Constitutional provisions in the name of `faith', a release from CPI(M) Central Committee office here said.
''In the current situation, it is essential to observe this day in defence of secularism and democracy,'' the Left bloc said in a statement.
Besides the CPI(M), the other parties were the Communist Party of India, All India Forward Bloc, Revolutionary Socialist Party, Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist)-Liberation and Socialist Unity Centre of India (Communist).
Calling upon all its units to mobilise to observe the day, also Dr B R Ambedkar's death anniversary, as `Defend the Constitution and Secularism Day', it flayed the RSS campaign as it was ''designed to subserve the communal agenda of the Sangh Brigade and nullify the provisions relating to secularism in the Indian Constitution.
