New Delhi, July 23 (UNI) A day after the trust vote in Parliament, the CPI(ML) today launched a month-long nationwide campaign against the Nuke Deal, price rise and other ''anti-people policies of the UPA Government''.
The Campaign was kicked off with a convention organised by the party at the Constitutional Club here ''for national resistance against the UPA's pro-imperialist betrayal".
Addressing the convention, various senior leaders of the Left parties, activists and intellectuals including Javed Naqvi, D Raja of CPI, Abani Roy of the RSP and Forward Bloc leader Comrade Devarajan, warned that the Nuke Deal with India would become an excuse to induct Israel next into the club of nuclear states even though it is not willing to end proliferation.
The parliamentary fiasco of a tainted trust vote was over, the Lef leaders called for the revolutionary Left and democratic forces to intensify the real people's battle in every nook and cranny of this huge country.
The launching of the campaign coincided with the centenary of the first political strike of the Indian working class in 1908 against Freedom fighter Bal Gangadhar Tilak's arrest.
The Convention adopted a resolution demanding a speedy inquiry into the ''shameful 'cash flash' episode in Parliament'', and called for an intensified struggle nationwide to demand scrapping of the Indo-US Nuclear Deal, price rise and other anti-people policies, which would culminate in a nationwide Jail Bharo on August 20, the date of a General Strike called by Central Trade Unions.
