Dislodge The Anti-People Jayalalitha Govt CPI(M)’s Clarion Call For The People Of Tamilnadu

A SPECIAL political conference of the CPI(M) Tamilnadu state unit called upon the people of the state to throw out the anti-people Jayalalitha government in the coming elections to the state assembly. The conference adopted a resolution delineating the people’s issues on which the elections must be fought. The resolution also contained contours of the alternative pro-people path any new government must adopt after coming to power.

The conference got off to a start on February 18 amidst thunderous slogans of ‘Red Salute to Red flag’ and ‘Red Salute to CPI(M)’ renting the air at Madurai Thamukkam Grounds with R Umanath, Polit Bureau member of the CPI(M) hoisting the Party flag.
At a time when all political parties in the state were engrossed in the task of seat sharing negotiations, the CPI(M) state committee was engaged in a different but admirable activity of conducting a political conference at Madurai for the purpose of formulating its document for an alternative path.
