CHANDIGARH: CPI's national council on Thursday flagged the issue of drug menace in the state, terming it an alarming situation.

"Drug menace (in Punjab) has grown to such an alarming situation that even the Central and state ruling alliance partner BJP is compelled to openly express concern about it. Punjab has thousands and thousands drug addicts, much more than any state of the country. The economic crisis of agriculture is leading to increasing rural indebtedness and farmers are committing suicides," said a resolution passed by the party.

The national council of the CPI resolved to organize mass resistance to the alleged attempts of the Modi government to "pursue policies of neo-liberalism and hastening the process of communal polarization."

Criticizing the BJP government for beef ban in Maharashtra and Haryana, national council of Communist Party of India (CPI) pointed out that the Centre had no business to do this as it was part of food for SC, ST and BC communities.

On the last day of the three-day national meeting of the CPI, party general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy said the BJP government had no right to enter out kitchens.

Announcing that the Left would contest upcoming Bihar polls independently, he expressed concern at BJP's alleged campaign against minorities in the country. "The Sangh Parivar is terrorising minorities in the country and Modi is silent over the issue," Reddy alleged.

The NC also decided to intensify the campaign "against communal offensive of the BJP government and RSS outfits by uniting all secular-democratic forces."

"The NC has noted that during the one year, this government has showered concessions after concessions on corporate houses, particularly the Adani-Ambani duo. Even the foreign trips that the Prime Minister undertook were used to hawk business for these corporate houses," said the CPI leaders.

"The much touted plan for Make in India is nothing but to facilitate the unrestricted entry of foreign MNCs for setting up the assembling units that will actually lead to deindustrialization of the country. The land grab ordinance, if converted into an act will not only deprive the farmers of their land but also reduce the area under cultivation that will have adverse impact on food production and endanger the very concept of food security," they added.


CPI's resolution on Punjab expressed "deep concern over the law and order situation, increasing atrocities on dalits and women, growing menace of narcotics, indebtness on the state and growing nexus between the corrupt political leaders of ruling alliance and civil and police administration. The drug, sand mining, land and transport mafia which has patronage of ruling SAD has become very powerful and actually running the government."
