CPI-Ms southern march enters Kerala

Thiruvananthapuram: The southern leg of CPI-M's "Sangharsh Sandesh Jatha" - march for struggle – launched by party general secretary Prakash Karat Sunday to highlight problems faced by the common people, including price rise and corruption, entered the State Monday.

The 'jatha', led by politburo member S.Ramachandran Pillai, will pass through eight of the state's 14 districts before entering Tamil Nadu again through Palakkad.

"The purpose of the jatha is to highlight the problems faced by the people on account of price rise, unemployment, the problems faced by the farmers and the massive corruption. We are the only one to form alternative policies to the present ones being laid out by either the Congress or the BJP," said Karat while launching the jatha.

"Through this march, the CPI-M will mobilise people to fight for their rights, especially the right to food, right to employment, education, and health. Besides, it will ask the people to fight the massive corruption in the country," added Karat.

The CPI-M will also send three other jathas - from Kolkata on March 1, Amristar on March 4 and from Mumbai on March 8th. They will all culminate at Delhi's Ramlila grounds with a rally on March 19.

Other smaller jathas will begin from from Assam, Odisha, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and will join the main marches.

Altogether, more than 10,000 km will be covered by all the four marches of the CPI-M.

Ten lakh copies of a booklet explaining the aim of the march have been published in various languages for the campaign.
