THE COMMUNIST Party of India (CPI) will launch a movement if the UPA Government goes ahead with its plan to increase the price of petroleum products.

On the second day of the State executive committee meet, CPI leaders decided to organise demonstrations at headquarters of 22 districts from June 26 on the issue of employment guarantee programme.

Holding the State government, administration and communal elements responsible for communal riots in Mau, Aligarh and other places, the CPI decided to check polarisation on communal ground.

The party will organise anti-communalism meets at all divisional headquarters. The first meet will be organised in Gonda on July 8.

On public issues including price hike, farmers’ problems, unemployment, landless people, dalits, food scam, corruption, deteriorating law and order situation and privatisation of education, the CPI will launch ‘jail bharo’ programme in September. The blue print of the movement will be prepared in the meeting of the State Council to be held on July 17 and 18.

To bring about change in the political scenario in the State, the CPI will organise a movement with Jan Morcha and allies .

General secretary of CPI AB Bardhan said the Central Government should take effective measures to check price hike. He directed the workers to start preparations for the coming Vidhan Sabha elections.
