Sitaram Yechury To Arun Jaitley: We Don’t Need To Learn Nationalism From You

CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury has equated finance minister Arun Jaitley’s comments on nationalism with former US President George Bush’s ‘either you are with us or with the terrorists’ assertion.

He said they would not take lessons in nationalism from the BJP.

“BJP’s contention on nationalism sounds like Bush’s infamous assertion – either you are with us or you are with the terrorists. Those supporting BJP are nationalists, those against them are anti-nationals. However, we are not going to learn nationalism from BJP,” Yechury said.

Jaitley had earlier said, “freedom of expression and nationalism do necessarily co-exist” and the Constitution gave full freedom for expressing dissent and disagreement but not the country’s destruction.

“The ideology of nationalism guides our beliefs and philosophy,” the Finance Minister had asserted.

Yechury had also accused the BJP for trying to suppress dissent and impose their idea of a “theocratic, fascistic Hindu Rashtra” on the country and asked the government to “stop interfering” in universities which have been set up under central laws.
