Undemocratic Practice of Chhattisgarh State Government Condemned

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (on September 15, 2022):

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has strongly condemned the action of Chhattisgarh government to refuse permission to a Padayatra organized by Communist Party of India under the leadership of our national executive member Manish Kunjam.

This action of the state government is highly undemocratic and unconstitutional. Suppression of democratic movement is the reason for people to adopt non-democratic methods of resistance which is not in the interests of progress and development.

We appeal to the government to withdraw its decision and allow the padayatra to go ahead.

We must remind that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is on padayatra with a slogan “Bharat Jodo” but CPI yatra is not allowed.
