CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury on Sunday compared Narendra Modi and Amit Shah to Duryodhana and Dushasana and vowed to defeat the BJP-RSS combine
Launching a sharp attack on the Prime Minister, CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury on Sunday compared Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah to epic Mahabharata's 'Duryodhana' and 'Dushasana'.
The Marxist leader said there were 100 Kaurava brothers in Mahabharat but most people know of only two—Duryodhana and Dushasana. "Similarly, people know only two in BJP—Narendra Modi and Amit Shah," he remarked.
Yechury—re-elected the Communist Party of India-Marxist General Secretary —vowed to defeat the BJP-RSS combine and said the CPI-M was determined to defeat the communal forces and restore harmony in the country.
'Modis looting the country'
Yechury claimed that Narendra Modi, fugutive diamantaire Nirav Modi and former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi were looting the country. Yechury said the loot increased after the Modi government came to power in May 2014.
"People's money kept in banks was looted. Those who did it escaped from the country and the government is not able to bring them back," he said.
He said that though Modi had promised to waive loans of farmers, he waived loans of about Rs 3 lakh crore of big investors and industrialists.
