Shyam Prasad Kesar is the Regional Secretary, Jammu of the CPI(M). Comrade Kesar spoke to our social media team in Visakhapatnam where he is a delegate to the 21st Party Congress of the party. The topic of discussion was the emerging political situation in Jammu. He tells that the RSS and BJP are continuously trying to polarize Jammu on religious lines and this is a challenge to the secular ethos of that society. He thinks that the Left, along with other secular forces, can play an important role in resisting this divisive politics.
