NPCC not to celebrate 136th anniversary of INC

In solidarity with the demand of farmers to repeal the three agriculture laws, NPCC has announced that it would not celebrate the 136th anniversary of Indian National Congress (INC).

Stating this, NPCC president K Therie in a statement observed that Delhi has been under siege for one month by farmers demanding repeal of the agriculture laws that intended to destroy the most successful system that farmers have enjoyed in favour of corporates. He said the new agriculture laws were unusual.

Accusing the BJP-led NDA of removing the fundamental right of appeal in the court, Therie alleged that immunity has been granted to corporates, besides the officials. 

He said aggrieved people have no right to appeal in the court, even as the government attacked the constitution, democracy and farmers directly and still cannot hear the voice of farmers.

According to the NPCC chief, it is nothing more than totalitarian rule. He said the Central government divided people, interfered in personal faith, personal freedom, customary laws, etc. He warned that anti-people bills would lead to second partition of India, and for which BJP would be solely responsible.

He said India’s constitution that promises to secure justice, liberty, equality to all citizens and promote fraternity to maintain unity and integrity of the nation, and provides freedom of expression, liberty, faith and the freedom to grow was no more safe in the hands of BJP. 

Therie alleged that the constitution was under serious attack as liberty, fundamental rights, freedom of expression and freedom of religion were all under attack. He pointed out that love-jihad, anti-conversion laws, stoppage of foreign aid for charity works of Christians, stoppage of scholarships to theological students, closure of theology curriculum, attacks on personal lives, etc, had undermined the constitution. 

And in today’s changed situation and in Nagaland’s context, he said he did not see the prevalence of the constitution as its rules were hardly referred in file noting, even as corruption was accepted as a way of life.

“Wherever and whatever you are, we are enjoying the provisions of the constitution. Therefore, it is appropriate for all citizens to give due recognition and appreciation and submit to the constitution. It does not mean, one should submit to corrupt rulers as the constitution did not provide to establish a corrupt government,” the statement emphasised.

True politicians understood the meaning of constitution and worked to achieve its collective political and economic objectives, he added.

Claiming that INC achieved India’s independence and gave the country constitution that made it a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic, the NPCC chief recalled that the party was found at the behest of British civil service officer Allan Octavian Hume in 1883, adding that in the first INC meeting held at Bombay from December 28 to 31, 1885 Womesh Chandra Bannerjee was elected as the first president and thus far there had been 88 Congress presidents.
