Item 2


All India Campaign From July 14


Four left parties CPI(M), CPI, AIFB and RSP has issued the following statement on July 4, 2008.


The Left parties have decided to launch an all India campaign from the 14th of July to go to the people to explain their opposition to the Indo-US nuclear deal, against the government's refusal to take appropriate measures to tackle the runaway inflation, backbreaking price rise and against all anti-people policies.


The Left parties will staunchly expose and oppose the efforts of the BJP and its allies to whip up communal polarization with a view to gain political and electoral support. The Left parties appeal to all other secular forces to join us in this endeavour.
