With the approaching assembly elections in Bihar, the Left parties have decided to launch a campaign against the BJP from the state next month on various issues, including corruption.
CPI general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy said Left parties will hold a convention in Patna on September 7, setting the tone of the campaign “to expose BJP on corruption” issues in the Hindi belt. This follows the BJP’s plan to undertake campaigns in constituencies of opposition MPs following a washout of the monsoon session of Parliament.

“We will carry out a counter campaign. As part of this, a joint convention by central leaders of all Left parties will be held next month. We want to campaign more in Hindi-speaking states and where it hurts the most, exposing the ruling party,” Reddy said.
He said the cadre will reach out to people through booklets, leaflets, public meetings and seminars. Reddy said the seat-sharing pact for Bihar amongst the Left parties will be finalised by next week.
