THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Left Democratic Front will take out its two campaign marches, earlier postponed in view of the Vengara bypoll, from October 21 to November 3. The two marches are aimed at exposing the anti-people policies of the Central Government and to oppose the communal forces. In a way, the Left is also planning to begin preparations for the Lok Sabha polls with this campaign. The LDF meet on Thursday presided over by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan finalised the schedule of the two marches.
The south zone march from Thiruvananthapuram to Ernakulam will be led by CPI state secretary Kanam Rajendran while the north zone rally from Kasargod to Thrissur will have CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan as its leader. The meet did not discuss in detail about the government action on Solar Commission report announced on Wednedsay. “It’s a decision taken by our government and the LDF fully endorses the decision,” said a senior leader. Ahead of the CPI party congress in Kollam in April 2018, the party will organise an artists meet on Friday to design its logo.
The meet to be held at Joint Council Hall in the capital will be attended by people from across the state. Party state secretary Kanam Rajendan will inaugurate the meet at 10.30 am. In connection with the party congress, the CPI will organise its state executive meet in Kollam on October 20. Party general secretary Sudhakar Reddy will attend the meeting to formulate the welcome committee for the party congress.
