27 political parties unite to form “India Manch” against BJP government: Jiten calls for protection of constitution and democracy


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, April 04: In a bold display of solidarity transcending ideological divides, a coalition of 27 political parties has emerged under the banner of “India Manch” with the shared objective of toppling the incumbent Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government. Opposition leader Jitendra Chowdhury delivered this groundbreaking announcement during a fervent election rally held in Kalyanpur on Thursday, setting the stage for a seismic shift in the Indian political scenario.

Addressing the gathering, Chowdhury expressed grave concerns over what he described as a decade-long crisis under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, emphasizing the erosion of constitutional values, democratic principles, and secular foundations of the nation. He underscored the imperative need to safeguard these fundamental pillars through the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Chowdhury lambasted the BJP-led government for allegedly infringing upon the rights of citizens and fostering an environment of turmoil and disillusionment. He highlighted the formation of the coalition of 27 parties as a unified effort to foster national cohesion and address the perceived injustices perpetrated by the ruling regime.

Furthermore, Chowdhury criticized the government’s economic policies, questioning the absence of relief measures despite promises of reduced prices. He accused the ruling party of prioritizing corporate interests over the welfare of the common populace, citing the privatization of crucial sectors such as airports, railways, banks, mines, and mills as evidence of their alleged disregard for public welfare.

Drawing attention to electoral malpractice, Chowdhury denounced the utilization of electoral bonds as a tool for corruption, alleging that the ruling party has exploited this mechanism to solicit funds from corporate entities, thereby subverting the democratic process. He applauded the recent verdict by the Supreme Court declaring electoral bonds illegal and a breeding ground for corruption, yet lamented the continued reliance of the ruling party on this contentious practice.

In his closing remarks, Chowdhury emphasized the coalition’s commitment to upholding constitutional integrity, judicial autonomy, and religious neutrality, portraying the formation of “India Manch” as a pivotal step towards reclaiming the democratic ethos of the nation.

The amalgamation of disparate political entities under the banner of “India Manch” signifies a potent challenge to the incumbent government’s dominance, heralding a period of heightened political contestation as the country approaches crucial electoral proceedings.
