Report: Brinda Karat's Press Conference
New Delhi, March 23: The CPI(M) today fired the major salvo by bringing out a campaign leaflet castigating the Congress led government on the price rise, hunger and malnutrition fronts. The ten page pamphlet was released by CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat, who charged that even as even as the government’s granaries are overflowing with a surplus stockholding- 84 per cent above buffer norms, kitchens of vast sections of our people remain empty, ‘they do not even get two square meals a day’, she added..
Calling for the secular alternative Ms Karat called for a total rebuff to both the Congress and the BJP let fronts. Not only this, she made it clear that the party would bring out 14 more exposures on various fronts under theme ‘Aam Admi Suffers in High Growth India’. The coming propaganda blitzkrieg would focus on Price Rise and Food Security, Communalism and Terrorism, Agriculture, Bharat Nirman , Economic Crisis and Recession, Working Class Issues, Urban Poor, Minorities, Women, Dalits and Adivasis, Disabled, Students and Youth, Education, Health and Foreign Policy.
