Targeted Communal Violence against Muslims in Siwan

NIA Raids in Bihar Conducted at Centre's Behest

CPIML Bihar State Secretary Kunal strongly condemned the NIA raids being conducted in various Districts on people associated with PFI and SDPI and said that this is being done at the behest of the Centre.

BJP Targeting Dalits, Women, Minorities

CPIML Bihar State Secretary Kunal said on 31 July 2022 that clearly it is the dalits, women and people from the minority community who are the target of the BJP. BJP is conducting a meeting of its various morchas in Patna, but by conducting such meetings, it cannot fool the people of the country any longer. With what face is the BJP holding this meeting in Patna, after running away from conducting a caste census? He added, BJP is not only anti-reservation, but also does not want to give dalits and OBCs their just rights.
