GUWAHATI, May 9 - �In Assam, public support to leftist ideology has been increasing day by day. Many youths are today interested to leftism. But, the left forces yet to rise in the State, as all those followers are segregated in different groups.�
This observation was made by senior leftist leader Hemen Das here today while addressing a programme held as part of the birth centenary celebration of noted communist leader Uma Sarma.
Das said, �Sarna contributed and sacrificed a lot for the party. In his days, very few people were there to carry the left movement forward. But, due to his efforts, the movement got a stronghold in the State.�
The organiser of the programme Guwahati Anchalik Samiti of Natun Sahitya Parishad said that as part of the birth centenary celebration, programmes will be held across the State in the coming days.
