Students’ March against Attacks on Education, Democracy & Social Justice

THE Modi government has completed two-and-a-half years. The promise of ‘achhe din’ has vanished long ago and instead of that, we are seeing an all-out attack on the life and livelihoods of common people. Students and youths had voted in large numbers for BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections with the hope that it would provide relief from the unrelenting miseries imposed by the Congress rule. However, the experience of these two-and-a-half years has proved to be contrary. This government has relegated education and employment -- the two prime agendas of the students in this country.

Peasantry Will Resist State & Corporate Attack on Land, Agriculture and Livelihood

THE Central Kisan Committee of AIKS met in Delhi on February 15-16 to discuss the prevailing agrarian situation in the country. It has decided to join hands with all like-minded left and progressive organisations of peasants, agricultural workers, dalits and tribals to resist the attack unleased by the Centre and various state governments on land, agriculture and the livelihood of the peasantry. AIKS will intensify the struggle against corporate land grab and the attack on the peasantry and the tribal population.

Massive Victory of Kisan Movement in Rajasthan

THE Vasundhara Raje-led BJP state government of Rajasthan imposed severe burdens on the farmers of the state. They refused to supply adequate water for irrigation.  Lakhs of acres of land had no water for cultivation. The AIKS took up the issue and organised massive kisan rallies, meetings, road blocks in the effected districts.  Finally, the unwilling government relented and released adequate canal water to the districts of Ganganagar, Hanumangarh and Bikaner. 

Persecution of Muslim Youth in Terror Cases

THE sordid and shocking record of the targeting and prosecution of Muslim youth being falsely accused in terror related cases has once again been highlighted by the Delhi High Court’s acquittal of all the three accused in the 2005 serial blasts in Delhi. Two men Mohammad Hussain Fazli and Mohd Rafiq Shah were acquitted of all charges by the Court, while Tariq Ahmed Dar was also found to have no role in the blasts but he was convicted for being a member of a terrorist organisation.
