Patna: CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury quoted from the Ramayana on Monday to ask Bihar voters to reject Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in assembly elections.

Addressing thousands of Left activists and leaders, Yechury expressed confidence that the people of Bihar would stop Modi’s “Ashwamedh horse”.

“Like Rama’s Ashwamedh horse was stopped by his two sons in the last phase of Ramayana, Modi’s Ashwamedh horse will be stopped by the farmers and workers of Bihar,” he said.

He also said that it was important to defeat the ruling Janata Dal-United as well as its allies–the RashtriyaJanata Dal and the Congress.

“There is a triangle before the people of Bihar. The first side is represented by the communal BJP-led NDA, which stand for Dusashan politics.

“The second is formed by the grand alliance of JD-U, RJD and Congress which represent the Sinhasan politics.

“The third consists of the Left parties which have come up with an alternative to defeat the Dusashan and Sinhasan politics,” Yachury stated.

Attending the meeting were members of the Communist Party of India, Communist Party of India-Marxist, Communist Party of India-Marxist-Leninist, Forward Block, Socialist Unity Centre of India and the Revolutionary Socialist Party.

“Last week, the entire Modi government bowed before the RSS at a meeting, and reports suggest that the RSS has instructed Modi’s government to implement its agenda,” Yechury said.

The BJP was trying hard to polarize Hindu votes in its favor and would fuel communal tension in Bihar in the coming days, he added.

Yechury termed the alliance of the JD-U, the RJD and the Congress as an opportunistic one.

“They have been using caste for politics and vote.”
