Yechury flays Modi, Shah for calling oppositions 'traitors'

Kolkata, Oct 19 (IANS): CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah for labelling opposition leaders as 'traitors' and their supporters as 'terrorists' whenever they voice opposition to the repealing of Article 370 of the Indian constitution that accorded a special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

Describing the comments made by Modi and Shah on opposition leaders as 'heinous and derogatory', Yechury on Friday said that such a level of attack on political opponents was 'unprecedented'.

"Modi and Shah are making comments about opposition leaders which are heinous and derogatory. Such level of attack on political opponents is unprecedented," the CPI(M) top gun said.

"It is now a trend on their part to label opposition leaders as traitors and supporters as terrorists if they raise questions on abrogation of Article 370," he said.

Yechury also lashed out at the faulty economic policies of the Modi government for the country getting into an 'unprecedented crisis'.

"It is due to the faulty policies of the Modi government that the country has got caught in such an unprecedented crisis," the the CPI(M) general secretary said.

He also alleged that the BJP-led NDA government was ruining the country's constitutional structure and secular fabric though its policies.

Yechury also referred to the way the bill were being bulldozed in Parliament without giving any scope for proper scrutiny by standing committees.

    If BJP is calling opposition traitors for opposing BJP's illegal, unconstitutional and unpopular move then what BJP should be labelled for doing this anti national activity neglecting the parliamentary procedure???????....This is a right moment for filing defamation and sedition case against BJP.
    Go Ahead Opposition. You are in the Right side of the Law.

    how narrow minded these people of BJP are!! anyone who speaks against them, questions their policies is called anti national.
    These people are the real traitors. Everyone knows whose hand is behind the bomb blasts. When these people are in power there are no blasts but only rumours.
    Terrific people. They do not want opposition..the country is marching towards chai-pakodaism
