- The RSS did not participate in the fight for freedom
- He joined the British in crucial stages
- Yechury with a Facebook post
New Delhi: CPI (M) Secretary General Sitaram Yechury has said that the RSS not only did not participate in the fight for freedom, but also joined the British at crucial moments. Yechury’s response came at a time when the BJP and other political parties were mocking the CPM’s Independence Day celebrations.
Yechury criticized the RSS in a Facebook post that shared the names of communist leaders fighting for freedom. “The RSS not only refused to be part of the freedom struggle, it also joined the British at crucial moments,” Yechury said, sharing the names of the PP members who were freedom fighters.
Yechury shared information about the days in jail for leaders BT Ranadive, R Sundarayya, M Basavapunayya, Harkishan Singh Surjeet, EMS Namboodiripad, AK Gopalan, P Ramamurthy, Pramod Dasgupta and Jyoti Basu.
This is the first time that Independence Day has been celebrated under the auspices of the CPM. Acting Secretary A Vijayaraghavan raised the national flag at the AKG Center, the office of the state committee in Thiruvananthapuram. However, A Vijayaraghavan said that this was not the first time that the national flag had been raised in the office of the state committee. In 1947, P. Krishna Pillai raised the flag. The left was a self-sacrificing party. The agrarian reform was raised by the left during the fight for freedom. Avijayaraghavan had said that the country is ruled by people who do not participate in the fight for freedom.
