‘People’s Assertion Rally’ in Siwan

On February 18, CPI(ML) organized a massive ‘Jan Davedari Rally’ (People’s Assertion Rally) in Gandhi Maidan, Siwan. More than 10, 000 participated in the rally. Addressing it as the main speaker Comrade Dipankar Bhattacharya, General Secretary, CPI(ML), spoke of the struggles of Siwan that had defied the terror of mafia dons and criminal gangs patronised by those in power. He said that the Nitish Kumar government had been unable to provide good governance to Bihar even in 30 months, let alone in 3 months as claimed by him when he was sworn in as Chief Minister. Nitish’s humiliation at the hands of agitating peasants in his own home district amply demonstrates the deeper resentment accumulating against him. Comrade Dipankar called upon people to participate in CPI(ML)’s ‘Pol Khol’ Rally in Patna on March 18.

Others who addressed the rally were Comrades Rameshwar Prasad, CC Member and National President AIALA, Dhirendra Jha, CCM and General Secretary AIALA, Amar Yadav, State Committee member and MLA, Satya Dev Ram, State Secretary AIALA, Javed Beg, Co-convener, Inquilabi Muslim Conference and AIPWA leader Comrades Sohila Gupta. Comrade Ghughali Prasad presided over the meeting. 
