Addressing the gathering, CPI(M) state secretary Uddhab Barman condemned the violence and terror against the CPI(M) and the Left Front, and urged upon all democratic forces in the state to protest this onslaught against democracy and democratic rights. The TMC led terror campaign includes gruesome killings, eviction from homes, imposition of fines, capturing offices of Left parties and mass organisations, rape and sexual harassment of women, extortion of money, injuring and maiming hundreds of people, torching homes, and so on and so forth. The attacks are being perpetrated to weaken the Left forces and to reverse the gains and hard won achievements of the people during the 34 year rule of the Left Front government, Barman said.
In his speech, Hemen Das said the electoral defeat of the Left Front is being used as an opportunity by the vested interests of the ruling classes to mount a class offensive to undo the gains made by the people during the Left Front rule and to vigorously pursue the neo-liberal economic policies which are spelling disaster to the common people. Das also asserted that in spite of the murderous attacks, the red flag will fly high in the country.
