CPI-M observes Janashiksha Diwas, GMP foundation day

The opposition CPI-M on Wednesday observed 79th Janashiksha Diwas and 75th foundation day of Gana Mukti Parishad.

Addressing the party gathering here at Agartala Town Hall, the CPI-M state secretary Jitendra Chaudhury accused the Manikya dynasty and alleged that the people including the tribals were exploited during the king’s rule in Tripura.

Chaudhury underlined the significance of the movement of the Janasiksha Samiti – ‘Janashiksha Andolan’ and said that the royal dynasty never considered any development for the common people of the state.

“The king’s administration deployed thousands of police and army in tribal areas. Village after village was set ablaze and their food stocks burnt to ashes in search of Janashiksha Samity leaders,” he said, adding that under such a terrible situation, Gana Mukti Parishad (GMP) was formed in 1948 to raise a resistance force to save the villagers from the onslaughts of the monarchy.

That marked the beginning of a people’s movement in the state with specific demands of democratically elected government, end of oppression and exploitation by royal forces, he said.

Meanwhile, Chaudhury mentioned that the biggest enemy of the people today is the RSS and the BJP. Their poisonous concept of religious nationalism has resulted in enormous misery for the common people.
