While speaking on the subject, Mr.Elyas Muhammad Thumbe said that Indian citizen should unite irrespective of cast creed and color to strengthen the democracy and secularism. The communal parties are gaining power through polarizing the voters communally. The fascist forces are disrupting the secular fabric of the nation by spreading hate among the religion. The government is least bothered to curb the communal encounters of the fanatic fascist groups. An alternative political solution is needed to tackle the situation and to bring the development to all strata of people as the people in India have lost trust on major parties. He said SDPI is a best choice of the people as an alternate political party for the development of the minorities, backward communities and deprived sections of our country. The party is striving to realize its dream of a country with ‘Freedom from fear’ and ‘Freedom from hunger’.
