KSKTU leaders begin indefinite fast

Staff Reporter

PATHANAMTHITTA: The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) central committee member M.A. Baby has said that the Left parties will intensify the agitation against what he calls the anti-people policies of the Union and the State governments.

Mr. Baby was inaugurating an indefinite fast launched by the Kerala State Karshaka Thozhilali Union (KSKTU) in front of the Collectorate here on Tuesday.

Mr. Baby alleged that corruption had become the hallmark of the United Democratic Front (UDF) Government. Factional feuds in the Congress and the internal problems in the UDF led by it had taken the State to an anarchic situation during the past four years, he alleged. The CPI(M) leader alleged that denial of pension to farm workers was in gross violation of the law. The KSKTU agitation was to press its demands for immediate disbursal of the pension arrears to the farm workers and to activate the workers' welfare board with out any further delay.

C.S. Sujatha, MP; Raju Abraham, MLA; the KSKTU district president, M.M. Sukumaran; the CPI(M) district secretary, K. Ananthagopan; the Centre of Indian Trade Unions district secretary, K.C. Rajagopalan; and the KSKTU leader P.K. Kumaran spoke.

The KSKTU district secretary, V.R. Sivarajan, and the district leaders N. Lalaji, N.R. Podiyan Sanandan Unnithan and B. Murali, are on the indefinite fast.
