Bangalore: Members of the Karnataka Komu Souhardha Vedike (KKSV) on Saturday termed the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi a fascist and a threat to democracy.
Addressing a press conference, KKSV State secretary K L Ashok said corporate companies and a section of the media had created a false image about Modi. “While we do not oppose Modi’s electoral win, he should function as per the values and guidelines of the Constitution of India. If he doesn’t, then we will hold protests across the State.”
The members said a State committee meeting would be held on June 1 to discuss the issue and take suitable action. Popular Front of India president K M Shareef demanded that the new NDA government discharge its Constitutional responsibility of fulfilling national values such as justice, liberty and equality among others.
“Modi is hiding his divisive and majoritarian politics inspired by the Hindutava ideology,” he alleged. “The BJP has turned a parliamentary election into a presidential election, which will harm the country in the long run,” he added.
