BJP regime similar to Hitler’s fascist model: Yechury
CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Sunday said the present regime at the Centre would resemble “Hitler’s fascism model” if a parallel is drawn with history, even as he accused BJP and RSS of manufacturing the debate on nationalism to serve their agenda of “Hindu” rashtra.
“An aggressive nationalism debate has been manufactured by the BJP and RSS so that they can force their agenda on the nation. They want to convert a democratic, republic and a secular country into a Hindu rashtra,” he told reporters here.
The senior Left leader alleged that nationalistic feelings of people are being misused.
“If a parallel were to be drawn of the present government with history, the present regime resembles (Adolf) Hitler’s fascism model,” he said.
Yechury said the patriotism debate was manufactured for specific reasons as “the government is unable to handle the massive expectations people had. Also, people are grappling with financial stress of which the government can do nothing about”.
