CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury today alleged that BJP was supporting vigilantist groups for "communal polarization" with an aim to divert resentment of people against economic decisions taken by the NDA government.
Addressing a public meeting at District Board ground here, Yechury said BJP was apprehensive that resentment of people against economic decisions might take shape of a national agitation against the government.
So it is promoting vigilantist groups harassing people in the name of 'Gau Raksha' and 'Romeo squad' to divert attention from real issues the country was facing, he alleged.
He also charged that leaders of opposition parties were harassed by trumping false corruption charges but, at the same time inquiry is not being conducted against ruling party leaders and his family members.
"Why the PM is mum on charges against Amit Shahs son while he is claiming himself Chaukidar of country"?, he questioned.
"There are 100 MPs of BJP who came from Cong. Had not they joined BJP, the saffron party would have never been in the power", he said.
