    Today on the strength of majority the right wing forces are trying to destroy every aspect of our democracy such as the constitution, education and the judiciary. They are trying in a systematic manner, by spreading hatred and fear, to stifle and silence our diverse social and cultural practices and ideas as well as the freedom of expression. The decision and implementation of policies like demonetization also reveal their authoritarian disposition.

    If these forces come to power again in 2019 the fascist regime will destroy our democracy. Let us therefore resist these fascist forces now, before it is too late. Let us resolve to defeat the BJP in the Gujarat elections.
