DOOMDOOMA, March 31 - The CPM has resolved to fight for consolidation of secular and democratic forces in order to dislodge the communal forces from power in the ensuing general election, said senior Marxist leader and CPM candidate for No. 14 Lakhimpur HPC Amiya Kumar Handique at a press conference held at Doomdooma Press Club on Friday afternoon.
To preserve the purity of the Constitution and more particularly it�s secular nature, the CPM would resist all the moves of the BJP to divide the country on communal lines.
Mentioning about the Citizenship Amendment Bill-2016, Handique said that the people of Assam had already understood the character of the communal parties and hence they would support the left democratic parties in the coming general election.
If elected, Handique promised to give priority to the flood and erosion problem of the state, besides unemployment, fixation of wages of the tea garden labourers, industrialisation, etc., would be his other areas of focus. He vowed to adequately present the burning issues of the state for debate on the floor of the Parliament and also participate in the mass struggle along with the masses for wresting their legitimate rights.
Exhorting the people to exercise their right to franchise in large numbers, he said that the principle of CPM was against all sorts of unfair means in electioneering as the party believed in people�s power.
CPM state committee member Gopal Gogoi , Tinsukia district secretary Drona Charingia Phukan and Doomdooma branch secretary Tarini Deka were also present in the press conference.
Earlier , the CPM candidate held several election rallies in Sadiya and Doomdooma LAC areas.
