The Aam Aadmi Party today launched a nationwide poster campaign called “Modi Hatao, Desh Bachao” (Remove Modi, Save the Nation). The campaign is aimed at targeting the BJP Government and its policies that have failed to address the issues faced by the common man.
Launching the campaign at the party headquarters, AAP Delhi State Convenor & Cabinet Minister Shri Gopal Rai said that the Modi Government wants to control the nation by suppressing the entire opposition. He also took a swipe at the BJP government saying that it is controlling the investigating agencies and trying to suppress the judiciary. The Aam Aadmi Party had announced the campaign by holding a protest at Jantar Mantar on Shaheed Diwas earlier this month.
As per Shri Gopal Rai, the campaign has already started in 22 states across the country, including Punjab, Gujarat, West Bengal, Orissa, Asam, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka, Goa, and Maharashtra, and all Hindi speaking states like Rajasthan, MP, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, UP, HP, and Uttarakhand. The campaign was announced on March 23, on the martyrdom day of Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh, Shaheed Rajguru, and Shaheed Sukhdev.
The poster campaign is a response to the government’s failure to fulfil its promises to farmers, diluting labour laws, and oppressing students in universities. The youth of the country are unemployed, and women face the brunt of inflation. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is stubbornly dismantling the democratic structure of the nation and eliminating the opposition. This is a direct assault on India’s democratic structure and constitution,” Shri Gopal Rai said.
He stated that the government is attempting to curtail the independence of investigative agencies and shattering Indians’ faith in the integrity of the investigative and judicial processes. The Prime Minister’s insistence on holding onto office without oppositional challenge is a threat to India’s democratic system and constitution, he added.
The nationwide poster campaign will move into its second phase on April 10 when it will be promoted through and by students at all universities throughout the country.
