Comrades joins up with Jihadi’s against this National Hero

published on March 20, 2012

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Pune on Sunday was not as smooth as expected. Few organisations, unhappy with Modi’s visit, protested in Camp area on Sunday morning.

The protest rally was jointly organised by the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), the Indian Muslim Front, the Jamiat-Ulama-i-Hind, the Jamaat-e-Islami, the Communist Party of India (M) and Lokayat.

The organisations wanted to stage the protest at the main gate of SM Choksey High School and Junior College in Camp where Modi attended a function on Sunday afternoon.

However, the police did not allow the protestors to reach the venue. This forced them to stage protests at Babajaan Chowk and raise slogans. After a few moments of noisy protests, the police detained around 60 protestors and kept them in custody till the function got over.

Ajit Abhyankar, general secretary, Communist Party of India (M) said, “The Gujarat riots have completed 10 years, but even after so many years the victims have not got justice. The victims staying in refugee camps are living in pathetic conditions and still we are welcoming Modi.

We wanted to register our protest and want to convey the message that not all Punekars are welcoming Modi. There are strong sentiments against him in the minds of Punekars, and therefore, we showed our protest.”

Azahar Tamboli, state president of SDPI said, “A city like Pune has witnessed various social movements in history, but the business class here forgot the history and invited Modi who has been facing criticism for the Gujarat riots. These people are trying to project Modi as an ideal candidate for the 2014 election, but we are going to protest against it and as a part of that protest we carried out demonstrations in Pune.”
