Mumbai, May 14 (PTI) Communists and Ambedkarites must come together as the RSS-BJP combine is trying to "subvert" the Constitution and impose a monolithic and illiberal socio-political order, CPI general secretary D Raja said on Saturday.
He made the remarks during the launch of the Marathi edition of the book 'Marx and Ambedkar: Continuing the Dialogue'.
He has co-authored the book with N Muthomohan and it was first released in 2018 in English, followed by a Tamil edition.
"In a country like India, Communists and Ambedkarites must work together to take up the fundamental issues such as caste, class and patriarchy. Because the RSS-BJP combine is trying to subvert the Constitution and impose a monolithic and illiberal socio-political order,” the former Rajya Sabha member alleged.
Raja said the RSS-BJP combine wants to “impose Sanatan values everywhere".
"In such a situation, to save the Constitution and to save democracy, there is a need for Communists and Ambedkarites to work together,” he said, adding that the book provides the ground for properly understanding Marxist theory and legendary social icon and jurist Ambedkar's thoughts.
