Left parties will meet on June 21 in Delhi to arrive at a decision on the July 19 Presidential election,General Secretary of Revolutionary Socialist Party T J Chandrachoodan said today.

Asked whether his party would propose a name at the meeting,he told reporters at the end of the party’s two-day central committee meet here: “We have not decided anything,but we don’t want to support a candidate fielded by Congress or BJP.”

Alleging that the Centre’s proposed Food Protection Bill was “unjustified” and was “anti-people,” Chandrachoodan said his party would organise protests across the country,which would culminate in a dharna at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar between July 30 and August 3.
