Bangalore: 01st December, 2015. The Federal Working Committee meeting of the Welfare Party of India held at Bangalore has decided to field candidates in the assembly elections in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Kerala due next year. The Party will make electoral alliances with like-minded parties. The Working Committee meeting chaired by national president Dr. S.Q.R. Ilyas while extolling Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for introducing total ban on liquor from April next year asked centre and state governments for total nationwide ban. Party found liquor consumption the main cause for many of the social evils spreading at shocking speed. The Party will launch agitation across the country to press the demand for prohibition. The meeting in a resolution expressed deep anxiety over increasing atmosphere of intolerance in the country and strongly condemned the hate speeches and utterances being made by leaders of Sangh Parivar and expressed its fears of division and disunity to the social fabric of the nation. The Party asked Prime Minister to break his meaningful and callous silence on the issue. While commenting that communalism is being used to polarize the polity and come to power, the Party made it clear that it is opposed to all kinds of communalism and vote bank politics by polarizing the people. The Party felt the pillars and foundations of democracy in the country at threats and decided to launch a Save Democracy campaign. The resolution castigated the central BJP government for pursuing neo liberal economic policies of the UPA in a ruthless manner without break and barriers and for taking complete u turn from the socialistic welfare state to a capitalistic unequal state. The Party raised its resentment over central government’s decision to allow 100% FDI in vital sectors including defense and media even at the risk of the security of the nation and the people. The resolution found the decontrolling policy of the central government responsible for the price hike of essential commodities and medicines making people’s life miserable. The Party asked to strengthen the PDS and to provide essential commodities at subsidized rate. The resolution found the unhealthy friendship of the central Modi government with the corporate a major reason for price rise. Welfare Party of India criticised some state governments for their move to implement diluted version of the Land Acquisition Act and to amend labour laws at the cost of basic rights and interests of the working class only to appease the corporates. While expressing anxiety over increasing suicides among farmers across the country at alarming rates due to the faulty anti-farmer policies of the central and state governments, the Party demanded to reverse the anti-farmer policies, provide them with easy and affordable logistics. The Party decided to launch nationwide campaign to highlight the plights of the farmers. The resolution while advocating for the present reservation system to continue as such criticised the demand made by RSS supreme head Mohan Bhagwat and other Sangh Parivar leaders for review and rerolling of the reservation. Party also shared its doubts and fears over the observation made by the apex court regarding reservation to super specialty posts. Party put forth a strong demand before the centre and the apex court to bring out a white paper on the composition of various sections like SCs, STs, FCs, Minorities etc as central and state government and PSU employees. The Party demanded for a nationwide socio-economic census of all castes and communities to ascertain their composition and social status. The Federal Working Committee meeting was followed by orientation workshop on highly relevant and burning issues like Labour Laws, Reservation Policy, Alternative Development, RTE & Common Schooling, Saffronisation of Education Policy etc. The meeting was attended by Moulana Abdul Wahab Khilji and Dr. Lalitha Naik (vice presidents), P.C Hamza and Shafi Madani (general secretaries), Subramani, Sheema Mohsin, Ambujakshan (Secretaries) Sajeed Khalid (Asst. secretary), Advt.
