Secular parties will come to power: Bardhan

By Our Staff Reporter

KOLLAM, MAY 4. The CPI general secretary, A.B. Badhran, has said that a secular Government would come to power at the Centre after the elections.

Addressing an election campaign meeting of the LDF candidate from Adoor, Chengara Surendran, at Kottarakara today, he said that once the secular Government comes to power, the Chief Minister, A.K. Antony, would become a burden for both the Congress and the secular forces.

Mr. Bardhan alleged that Mr. Antony was sheltering the Sangh Parivar forces. The BJP-led rule at the Centre was harming the interests of the nation's unity and ruining the achievements made by the country since Independence.

Farmers were being driven into committing suicide and the same was happening under the A.K. Antony rule. The UDF Government had completely ignored the traditional industries. As a result, the workers of this sector had been hit by poverty and starvation. Moves are afoot to sell public undertakings.

The CPI(M) Kottarakara area secretary, Ravindran Nair, presided. The CPI(M) district secretary, K.R. Chandramohan, the AIYF leader, Soni B. Thengamam, and the RSP leader, V.P. Ramakrishna Pillai, addressed the gathering.
