BJP regime similar to Hitler's fascist model: Yechury

Mumbai, Mar 6 (PTI) : CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury today said the present regime at the Centre would resemble 'Hitler's fascism model' if a parallel is drawn with history, even as he accused BJP and RSS of manufacturing the debate on nationalism to serve their agenda of 'Hindu' rashtra.

"An aggressive nationalism debate has been manufactured by the BJP and RSS so that they can force their agenda on the nation. They want to convert a democratic, republic and a secular country into a Hindu rashtra," he told reporters here.

The senior Left leader alleged that nationalistic feelings of people are being misused.
"If a parallel were to be drawn of the present government with history, the present regime resembles (Adolf) Hitler's fascism model," he said.

Yechury said the patriotism debate was manufactured for specific reasons as "the government is unable to handle the massive expectations people had. Also, people are grappling with financial stress of which the government can do nothing about".

He alleged the government intends to let private banks take over their public sector counterparts who, as per conservative estimates, have lost around Rs 6 lakh crore due to non-payment of loans.

"There has been a 26 per cent rise in farmers' suicides during two years of Modi's rule. (Crude) oil rates have fallen drastically but consumers have not benefited. There is frustration among people. The government is scared that all this does not transform into an agitation and thus this nationalism debate is created," he said.

Replying to a query, he said if Jawaharlal Nehru University is compared with its peers, "its contribution in IAS, IFS, IPS is large and people's money is being used properly".

"You will find a JNU product everywhere. So there is no wastage of taxpayers' money. JNU students are also soldiers who are fighting for a better India," he said referring to the criticism of the university and its students by the right-wing parties.

Meanwhile, CPI leader D Raja who was also present at the press conference, said that like the British era, the BJP's era too will end.

"India is a secular democratic republic. Those who are saying this is a Hindu rashtra are saying anti-unconstitutional (things). As British raj had ended, BJP's Raj (rule) will also end. I have visited the borders. Officers from dalit community are guarding them and here you are troubling dalits," he alleged.

"The JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar is the final product of 'Make in India' campaign and there are thousands of such Kanhaiyas' in the making," Raja added.

    What kind of democracy and secularism is this Yechury talking about? The Chinese or North Korean type where hundreds flee each year to seek asylum in other countries? What did his Communist China do when there was a pro-democracy demonstration by students in 1989? They have compelled the Roman Catholic Church to rename as Chinese Patriotic Church. Is this what is called secularism and freedom of worship?

    The intolerance of the Modi Government shows very similar tendencies to what was reported about Hitler in The New York Times in 1922!

    "The New York Times
    Tuesday, November 21, 1922

    But several reliable, well-informed sources confirmed the idea that Hitler's anti-Semitism was not so genuine or violent as it sounded, and that he was merely using anti-semitic propaganda as a bait to catch masses of followers and keep them aroused, enthusiastic and in line for the time when his organization is perfected and sufficiently powerful to be employed effectively for political purposes.

    A sophisticated politician credited Hitler with peculiar political cleverness for laying emphasis and over-emphasis on anti-Semitism, saying "You can't expect the masses to understand or appreciate your finer real aims. You must feed the masses with cruder morsels and ideas like anti-Semitism. It would be politically all wrong to tell them the truth about where you really are leading them."

    The Hitler movement is not of mere local or picturesque interest. It is bound to bring Bavaria into a renewed clash with the Berlin Government as long as the German Republic goes even through the motions of trying to live up to the Versailles Treaty. For it is certain the Allies will take umbrage at the Hitler organization as a violation of the military clauses of the treaty and demand disbandment, eve as in the case of its predecessor, the Orgesch."

    History is full of lies?

    Earth is flat , sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Earth does not go around the sun. Man did not land on the moon - this was elaborate hoax that the US played to down play Soviet Union.

    In Bihar Rabri Devi was not remote controlled by Lalloo and Modi is not a front of right wing ideology.

    Nationalism that identifies an enemy within without the scope for Tolerance,Accommodation and Mediation is going to produce exactly same results as Hitlers party did. However direct personal comparison to Hitler may be in appropriate.

    I don't know why, whenever BJP comes to power at the center, Hitler, Intolerance, riots, unrest etc terms comes up & discussed most on public platforms, social media, channels etc..!

    Yesterday, our acting PM Anupam Kher said somewhere 'Intolerance is only issue for Rich and famous people & not for common man'... but in Jaipur a church has been damaged by Sanghee members!

    Were those who carried out church attack were celebrities like Anupam Kher (rich & famous)???

    Albert, i thought living in San Francisco might have widened your thinking scope. But your views are old or you must be suffering from Modi fear. If Modi appeases you tomoro like Congress did and allows you to carry on with your work then ... Dont give wrong information if you dont. Communist theory was founded by Lenin and not Karl Marx. Karl Marx wrote the book and Lenin implemented it. This Yetuchury is destabilisng India and now making use of Kanaiah to capture power in West bengal and kerala. So he is shouting at top voice. Ask him what is his idea of communism and how he wil implement it here in India. His party destoried Bengal and now he is talking nonsense. Unfortunately, he finds poeple like you in suport. It is our national tragedy

    Communist party was founded by Carl Marks in England not by Lenin & Stalin. After the 1st world war Russia was starving under the leadership of Russian Royals. Communist idea & movement brought Russians out of poverty until Russian experiment in Afghanistan.

    Russian people had it better under the Royals than under Lenin/Stalin. Stalin initiated the purges, the wave of terror, gulags and many massacres of innocent people. If the Soviet Union was a communist paradise why did it collapse so miserably in 1991?

    Actually Benito Mussolini was the one who founded the fascism. Hitler Started Nazism which had the ideology of Aryan being the superior race and all others are inferior. That's why he had Swasthika as the flag of Germany.
    But Yechury's comparison Doesn't suit Modi because Modi is elected by the people. Hitler crowned himself as a dictator.
