The Communist Party of India (CPI) on Tuesday said that the LDF would welcome those who were willing to come back to the Front.   ‘’Some of the parties and groups, which had left the Front, expressed their willingness to come back to the Front. We will discuss about it and those who are ‘eligible’ will find a place,’’ CPI state secretary Pannian Ravindran said here.  The CPI is not against those who are willing to come back to the Front, he said after the party state council meeting.

On the report of the possible return of former CPM leader M R Murali, who had severed ties with the party and formed Janakeeya Vikasana Samithi,  Pannian said that the issue was not discussed.

He said that the meeting decided to launch agitations against price rise and ‘sabotaging’ of social security measures. As part of the agitation, the party will take out protest marches in all panchayats from January 13 to 20. The party workers will lay siege to village offices on January 22, he said.

Pannian said that the party would support the agitations by government employees against contributory pension scheme.   He said Abdul Nasser Madhani, presently lodged in a Bangalore jail, should be given humanitarian consideration. Madhani should be provided proper medical treatment facilities, Pannian said.
