CPI(M) Protests Attack on Left Activists in Bengal



CPI(M) held a demonstration outside Banga Bhawan on January 9 to protest against the assault on Left leaders and activists in Bamanghata, in the outskirts of Kolkata by Trinamool miscreants. Hundreds of demonstrators shouted slogans condemning the attack.


The demonstration was addressed by Sitaram Yechury, Polit Bureau member of CPI(M), Central Secretariat members Joginder Sharma, Hannan Mollah and Nilotpal Basu.


The incident is the latest instance of the continuing violence by Trinamool Congress against CPI(M), the Left parties and the opposition and the democratic rights of individuals are under constant threat in the state.


Speakers demanded immediate arrest of TMC goons responsible for the incident and reiterated that CPI(M) would defeat all such anti-democratic designs.
