The Communist Party of India (Marxist) is contesting in one seat, Morena in Madhya Pradesh. This parliamentary constituency comprises eight assembly constituencies, and will go to polls on 30 April. Party has already held meetings of cadres and sympathizers in 175 villages. Public meetings in the area have also begun. The campaign is expected to cover all kasbas by 31 March.
Com. Jugal Kishore Pipal, District Secretariat Member of the Party in Morena and President of the All India Kisan Sabha, Morena District Committee is our candidate.
The CPI (M) has led many struggles in the area against atrocities on dalits. The district has thirty percent of dalit population, who face severe atrocities. Located on the banks of the river, Chambal, Morena has witnessed rampant land acquisition at throwaway prices facilitated by the state government for the benefit of private business. The CPI (M) has been at the forefront of many struggles against this, including a padayatra in the recent past. Vulnerable to drought, people of the district have been facing severe hardship, which will be the focal issue of our campaign in the elections.
