Nalgonda: Renowned political analyst and civil rights activist Prof Anand Teltumbde on Thursday alleged that Narendra Modi government is working with a hidden agenda to convert India into a fascist Hindu country. Speaking at the 4th State level meeting of Telangana Vidyarthi Vedika (TVV) in Nalgonda town, Prof Anand Teltumbde, who is also grandson of Dr B R Ambedkar, said that right from its formation in 1935, Sangh Parivar has been making efforts to make India as Hindu country.
Some Hindu fascist forces, which have no belief in the Constitution of India, drafted by Dr B R Ambedkar, are working with an objective of hoisting saffron flag on Red Fort, he alleged. “We are now in critical juncture as Modi government is trying to convert India into Hindu country. It may also try to introduce Presidential system in the country, if the ruling BJP gets required majority in Rajya Sabha,” Prof Anand Teltumbde felt.
He also charged the Modi government of encouraging privatisation in the country. He called upon the youth and the students to be prepared for facing these challenges which would be created by BJP-led NDA government. Prof Teltumbde ridiculed the BJP’s Delhi chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi as ‘number one fool’ for saying that the US President’s visit to India would result in the country’s development.
Stating that rural areas in the country were cut off from quality education, Prof Teltumbde regretted that the successive governments have utterly failed to implement Article (45) of the Constitution, which has mandated universal compulsory education to the children up to 14 years of age.Pointing out that health and education are parameters of individual development, he opined that Indian health care system was the most privatised in the world.
As per World Health Organization (WHO) figures, the persons, who had less than 18.5 Body Mass Index (BMI), were considered to be suffering from malnutrition. In the country, the BMI of 80 per cent of SC population and 50 per cent of ST population is less than 18.5.
In addition to this, 50 per cent of the children aged below five years were suffering from malnutrition in the country, he added. Strongly criticising the state government for denying permission to the TVV to take out a rally and creating hurdles to its meeting, the Kharagpur IIT Professor felt that the act of the government is unconstitutional and Telangana State was carved out with the sacrifices of 600 Telangana students. Cine actor and director R Narayana Murthy, TVV State president D Vijay and others also attended the meeting.
