Advani`s yatra a farce: CPI(M)
New Delhi: Terming BJP leader L K Advani`s
proposed `rath yatra` as a "farce", the CPI(M) has said the country can ill-afford the sharpening of communal polarisation
under the "veil" of fighting corruption.
Noting that the latest yatra would be Advani`s sixth
since the "infamous 1992 yatra that left behind a mayhem of
communal bloodshed", Marxist leader Sitaram Yechury said, "Notwithstanding the law of diminishing returns that has been operating exponentially with him, he has undauntedly announced yet another yatra."
Observing that the people would "see through the farce"
of this yatra on corruption, he remarked, "The first time
Advani went on a yatra, it was a tragedy. The second was a
farce. This would be a farce of the sixth order."
"The country can ill-afford the sharpening of communal
polarisation under the ostensible veil of fighting
corruption", Yechury said in an editorial in the latest issue
of CPI(M) organ `People`s Democracy`.
He claimed Advani`s yatra was bound to make the country
recollect the series of scams that rocked the erstwhile NDA
government like telecom scandal, sugar scam, UTI fiasco, Ketan
Parekh stock market scam, scams in defence deals exposed by
Tehelka, the coffin scam, the mega petro scam and land scam.
"Apart from these scams, this BJP government opened the
Mauritius route for financial transactions that has led to
large-scale money laundering and transfer of black money
abroad," Yechury alleged.
