Left groups to join hands against Modi

Left parties and groups have started regrouping to counter the “right-wing offensives” of the Modi government. Many processes at different levels have begun, and series of meetings are being organised.

The first meeting in the national capital was organised over a week ago, on October 11, at the initiative of some left groups, including CPIML (Liberation).

“Representatives of several organisations and concerned individuals met to discuss the need and possibility of forging a broad democratic platform, both to take on the intensified offensive on people’s movements and rights in a united way, and to powerfully assert an alternative vision for India,” said the report circulated after the meeting.
The meeting was attended by CPIML (Liberation) general secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya, Citizens for Democracy general secretary N D
Pancholi, Kavita Krishnan of the All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) and Vijay Pratap (Samajwadi Samagam) among others.

Another meeting was convened by activist groups and NGOs on Monday. This meeting has decided to participate in a convention to be held in Odisha later this month.
The CPM has also initiated the process of a broader Left unity and a meting has been convened in Delhi on November 1.

CPM general secretary Prakash Karat met all parties  who have been outside the fold of the Left Front. They include SUCI and CPIML (Liberation). Both the parties have been opposing the Left Front.  
“The meeting will decide on the programme of joint action,” said Karat in a statement.
