The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) supremacy in the country had been reduced from 71 per cent to 40 per cent, and it would diminish further in the near future, Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) politburo member Brinda Karat said here on Saturday.

Addressing a gathering on the occasion of 19th state conference of All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA), Karat said the BJP’s domination would weaken further as it had failed to serve the people.

Terming the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as Rastriya Sarbanash (destruction) Samity, she said they didn’t accept the Indian Constitution and proclaimed to follow “Manusmriti” (Manu’s code on social practice).

The CPI-M leader claimed everyday 10,600 women were being tortured in various ways. 93 women were being raped a day, with one-third of them minor, she added.

She said the BJP leadership was avoiding the real issues by mixing politics with religion and misguiding the women and common people.

While the country’s economy had sunk, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman was saying no recession, she said and added, over 37 per cent educated youths were unemployed, and rural people could earn only Rs 580 a month.

Addressing the gathering, former Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said the previous Left government’s achievements in education, health, agriculture and infrastructure sectors were being ruined by the BJP government.

Sarkar, a CPI-M politburo member, said the Left Front government had taken the free health services to each remote and rural area. But the BJP government withdrew the services and imposed huge charges for various treatments and health services, he added.

“The government schools are being handed over to private parties. Irrigation systems created by the erstwhile Left government had collapsed. The BJP is losing ground. People are not joining their rallies and meetings,” he said.
