Guwahati subjatha of Sangarsh Sandesh Jatha flagged off

Guwahati Jatha was flagged off by Manik Sarkar, Polit Bureau Member on February 23. CPIM Assam State secretary Com. Uddub Barman is leading the jatha. The jatha will cover Nalbari, Barpeta, Kokrajar, Bongaygon and Golpara Districts in Assam on the 23rd and 24th. The jatha will enter West Bengal on the 25th. Nirupam Sen, Polit Bureau Member will receive the Guwahati Jatha at Cooch Behar. From there the jatha will start its journey through Jaypalguri, North Dinjapur, South Dinjapur, Malda, Murshidhabad, Nadiya, 24 North Parganas district and reach Kolkota on the 28th where it will join with the main Eastern Jatha led by Com. Prakash Karat.

Com Manik Sarkar while inaugurating the mass meeting after flagging off of the Guwahati Jatha, termed the recent 48-hour countrywide strike as an expression of resentment of the common people and called for a vigorous agitation against price rise, unemployment and corruption across the country.

"The recent bandh was successful because it had the support of common people. They are the worst sufferers of the UPA government's failure to curb price rise, solve unemployment problem and stem rampant corruption. Apart from Left-affiliated trade unions, Congress and BJP's trade unions extended support to the strike. This itself reflected that people and trade unions across the parties are against the present affairs of the government," said Sarkar.

"Today, half of India's population comprises youth in the age group of 18 to 30 years. Yet, 20 to 22 crore educated youths are unemployed. There is escalation of price rise of essential commodities. On the other hand, there is rampant corruption and huge accumulation of black money in foreign banks. Through this 'jatha', CPM will reach out to the common people int he country, highlighting the failures of UPA government," said Sarkar. Sarkar said even President Pranab Mukherjee, while addressing both houses of Parliament recently, did not raised these urgent problems.
