CPI(M) to launch series of movements
Sensing a growing discontent among the people against the Mamata Banerjee Government, the CPI(M) in West Bengal has decided to launch a series of movements while preparing to fight an 'important battle' in the coming panchayat polls.
As the two-day state committee meeting of the CPI(M) concluded here today, the party called for organising the poor, peasants and labourers to conduct the movements, based on the people's demands.
The party also resolved to get prepared for the coming panchayat polls and put up its candidates everywhere.
Party's state committee Secretary Biman Basu said the polls would be made a plank to put up a fight against the 'conspiracy' to destroy the three-tier panchayat system in the state.
The participants at the meeting alleged that in many areas elected panchayat members were being terrorized and made inactive. While rampant violation of rules and corruption was being indulged in, work for rural development came to a halt.
They felt that people were getting aggrieved and started airing their voice against the ruling party. Under this circumstances, the panchayat election was going to be a very important political battle, they said.
