CPI(M) leader and DYFI State President Muneer Katipalla said that the upcoming elections are between the 10% who represent the rich and 90%, who represent the marginal.

Speaking during the CPI(M) convention of Mangaluru South assembly constituency, at Don Bosco Hall here on Sunday, he said that all the current MLAs of the district are representing the rich community. Nobody is concerned about the poor.

The CPI(M) has been fighting for the rights of the poor and for the unorganised sector workers, said the leader.

Inaugurating the convention, CPI(M) district secretary Vasant Achary said that the representatives from other political parties have failed to provide jobs, food, shelter, education and medical facilities to the needy. Both the Congress and the BJP are same in appeasement of pro-capitalists and in implementing liberalisation policies for them.

He, meanwhile, alleged of massive scale corruption by the Central government in the disinvestment of public sector organisations. He asked why RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat is not arrested, despite delivering provocative speeches.

CPI(M) leader Balakrishna Shetty in his keynote address said that the party has been fighting for the rights of the people from the unorganised sector, not only during the time of elections but at all times. It is due to the fights carried out by the CPI(M) that many pro-people laws were implemented.

The party has always been with beedi workers and Anganwadi workers in their fight for the rights.

Mangaluru South candidate from CPI(M) Sunil Kumar Bajal was present among others.
