CPI(M) will focus its election campaign in Haryana on the livelihood issues of the people for which the party and the mass fronts led by party leaders have been fighting tirelessly round the year. Stating this CPM Central secretariat member Mr. Nilotpal Basu emphasised that toiling people had very high stakes in the outcome of the forthcoming parliament elections. He said that the game of defections was at its worst and there was hardly anything to choose between Congress and BJP.
When the Congress was losing ground with greater speed the BJP has an agenda of taking the country on the path adopted by Pakistan. He reminded that the pitiable condition of democracy
was mainly due to the theocratic state which gave birth to fundamentalism. Such a path was not acceptable to the people of our country.
Party state secretary Inderjit Singh claimed that CPM and the CPI were the only parties in Haryana who were upholding value based principled politics and never indulged into opportunism and ne ver played identity politics based on caste or religious sentiments. We have rather forged unity of the people based on workers and farmers and defended the rights of marginalized and weaker sections when attacked by the dominant vested interests.
The party has decided to observe 23 March Shahid Diwas as a day against imperialism and communalism against which Bhagat Singh and his compatriots were a glorious symbol.
The party has decided to adopt its election campaign by going house to house for seeking support in the for a policy change and not alone the leaders. Dates for filing nominations of its candidates have been fixed for 19, 20 and 21 respectively for Sirsa, Hisar and Bhiwani- Mohindergarh seats respectively. Another rally of the Left parties is scheduled to be held at Karnal on 16 March. It will be addressed by CPM leader Hannan Mollah and CPI leader Amarjeet Kaur.
