CPI-M observes 81st anniversary of ‘Quit India Movement’

The opposition CPI-M party on Wednesday remembered the contribution of the freedom fighters of the country in ‘Quit India Movement’ to eliminate British rule and observed the 81st anniversary of the movement.

Addressing the party workers and supporters, the CPI-M state secretary Jitendra Choudhury castigated the ruling BJP government at the Centre and the RSS to call them ‘British agents. He alleged, “The RSS acted as a British agent way back in 1942 during the Quit India Movement and tried to disrupt the freedom of this country from British rule.”

“The British agent – RSS backed BJP has adopted the policy of the then British to loot this country yet again after 81 years of the Quit India Movement,” he alleged.

He said, “The BJP under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is looting this country by handing over the country’s resources to the corporates. There is a need to eliminate corporate rule to safeguard the country’s democracy.”

“There is a need for a united fight against this Corporate rule like the way all fronts way back in 1942 fought jointly to save the nation from the hands of the British,” he said.

The All Indian Kisan Sabha (AIKS) and the Centre of Indian Trade Union (CITU) state committee jointly organized a rally here at Agartala to mark the 81st anniversary of ‘Quit India Movement’ and raised a slogan – ‘Corporate lootera Bharat Charo, Khet Charo’.
