The CPI(ML-Liberation) would contest 26 seats in the coming West Bengal Assembly polls.

CPI(ML-L) will highlight the alleged failure of the Left Front Government in improving the condition of the poor and containing starvation deaths.

Announcing this in Kolkata on Sunday, CPI(ML-L) general secretary Dipankar Bhattacharjee told reporters that the party would also contest the coming Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Pondicherry and Assam.

"We are going to campaign against the Left Front Government's failure in improving the condition of the people below poverty line in West Bengal and contain starvation deaths as reported from Amlasore and tea gardens of north Bengal," he said.

"While the government is being hailed by a section of the people for its industrial drive, the issue of its failure to imporve conditions of the poor during its 29-year rule is not being raised," Bhattacharjee said.

The party, which was holding its politburo meeting here, also complained about the Election Commission's allegedly passive role in the electoral reforms in Assam.

"While the EC has taken a pro-active step in West Bengal, there are complaints that it is not doing enough for electoral reforms in the Congress-ruled Assam especially in Karbi Anglong area," party state secretary Kartik Paul said.
