This Rally, That Rally; Now 'Khabardar Rally' in Bihar

Typography

Patna: Communist Party of India (CPI-ML) General Secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya is once again threatening to launch a statewide rally in Bihar to protest against the state and central government's failure to check prices and the growing incidents of crime against the poor and dalits.

Calling it the 'Khabardar Rally', Bhattacharya said that the rally would be held on October 30 and serve as a warning to both state and central governments that have failed to keep the prices of essential items under check and have also failed in protecting the minorities, dalits, and poor from the feudal forces in Bihar.

Yet another rally dubbed as 'Swabhiman Rally' would be held on September 15 in Baddi village in Sasaram district as a sign of solidarity against the villagers and the family members of an old man who was beaten to death by local landlords on August 15 when he tried to hold a flag-unfurling function before the statue of Sant Ravidas.

Citing examples of recent incidents including the Mid-Day Meal tragedy, police firing in Madhubani and Bagaha, and the train accident in Sasaram that left 28 persons dead, the CPI-ML leader said that all these were signs of collapse of the state machinery and unmasked the true face of the Chief Minister who had no time to meet with any of the victims.

Demanding to declare Bihar 'drought-hit', Bhattacharya expressed his dissatisfaction with the Food Security Bill saying it did not go far enough to protect the poor of the society.
