CPI(M) Kicks-off Election Campaign For Ranchi

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has kicked-off the campaign trail for its candidate for Ranchi Lok Sabha seat, Com. Rajinder Singh Munda, on March 11th, with four large worker meetings. These meetings were held in four of the seven assembly segments Hatia, Silli and Khijri.

On March 10th, a large workers meeting was held in Ranchi city, where Comrade Brinda Karat, member, Polit Bureau,  addressed the hundreds of CPI(M) workers attended the meeting. The meeting was attended by candidate Com. Rajinder Singh Munda and State Secretary Com G.K. Bakshi. Slogans like 'Congress Hatao, BJP Harao', 'Ranchi Mein CPI(M) Lao' resounded at the meetings when Com. Brinda Karat said Jharkhand is one of the richest States in minerals and its people are the  poorest.

“Since the State was formed in 2000,  the Congress and the BJP have taken turns to rule themselves or through equally corrupt proxies. In 12 years there have been nine chief ministers Presidents rule imposed thrice. Jharkhand has become 'lootkhand',” Com Brinda Karat said.

A big group of lawyers were also present. In Ranchi, parties like CPI, Marxist Coordination Committee and RSP have pledged their support.
