November will Witness
From Our Special
Correspondent in Kolkata.
NOVEMBER will be the
month of struggle in
The issues of campaign and movement include the main five all-India demands: Curb price rise and ensure universal right to food; take firm action on all corruption cases and adopt an effective Lokpal Act; ensure supply of fertiliser at subsidised prices to farmers; take steps to curb unemployment and fill up all vacancies in government posts; stop FDI in the retail sector and protect the interests of small shopkeepers and traders. Along with these demands, specific issues arising out of TMC-Congress government’s actions in the state will also be raised. Voice will be raised against ongoing political terror and attack on education. The Left Front has already raised the issue of declining prices of agricultural produces and increasing rural distress in the state. Political vendetta by the new government has crossed limits, which has been nastily reflected in their inclination to even change the name of the satellite new town around Kolkata, named after Jyoti Basu. The November campaign will mobilise public opinion against this also.
In the first phase, campaign will be organised from November 1 – 6 in all districts. The second phase of campaign, more intensive and wider, will be undertaken during November 11 – 25. In between there will be massive mobilisation and ‘Jail Bharo’ by the working class on November 8. There will be civil disobedience from November 21 to 25 in all districts and sub-divisions. On November 29, there will be state-level civil disobedience in Kolkata in which the frontline leaders of the Left Front will also join.
organisations have also planned for an
intensive movement in November. They will go for civil
disobedience in the
districts from November 22 to 25 and then they will join the
called by the Left Front Committee on November 29 in Kolkata.
