CALL FOR DEFEATING AUTHORITARIAN FORCES LED BY NARENDRA MODI

Citizens For Democracy (CFD) in its conference held today at New Delhi on ‘Challenges Before Democracy’ has viewed with grave concern the manner in which RSS has come out openly to contest the present elections by hoisting Narendra Modi as the Prime-Ministerial candidate - a calculated step to impose authoritarianism in the country to serve the corporate interests. The CFD conference views the present elections as unique and critical and has come to the conclusion that in order to save democracy it is essential to defeat BJP led by Narendra Modi. The conference has further called upon the people to vote for such a candidate in their constituency who cherishes democratic and secular values and who is in a better position to defeat the Modi-led alliance.
