Popular Front of India has launched a 3-day long campaign starting December 18 to 20, against Enforcement Directorate’s raids on the organisation’s leaders and its members.
Organization activists across the country will go from door to door, to meet people to tell them how “investigation agencies and government institutions have become instruments of torture in the hands of the central government”.
“Through the campaign, the organization intends to wake up masses against this ongoing repression,” PFI said in a statement.
“Agencies like ED, NIA and CBI are being misused by the BJP at the behest of RSS government to settle scores with its political rivals and suppress voices of dissent. Organizations and activists who stood at the forefront against anti-people policies are now being targeted by implicating them in fabricated cases. The concocted cases against Popular Front of India, the raids on its offices and the residences of its leaders are nothing but part of these vindictive actions,” the statement asserted.
Recently, hundreds of people across the country joined protest marches expressing their outrage over the ED raids on the offices and houses of Popular Front demanding that the BJP-led central government must desist from using agencies against Popular Front to serve its political ends. According to reports, massive protests took place in hundreds of places in different states such as Delhi, West Bengal, Rajasthan, Bihar, Manipur, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu states.
