Patna, Aug 14: Continuing its tirade against soaring prices, agricultural crisis and the proposed Indo-US nuke deal, the CPI on Thursday Aug 14 announced to launch mass movement in Bihar.
CPI state secretary Badrinarayan Lal said here that the decision was taken in the party's state executive meeting.
He said because of its 'faulty' policies the UPA government had failed to control rising prices and it also could not implement the Common Minimum Programme.
''Ignoring all such issues, the UPA is all set to go ahead on the proposed 123 deal,'' he said. It indicates America was interested in making India its strategic partner and was eager to enter into the Indian market, he added.
Mr Lal said to support the nationwide general strike of the trade unions and other organisations, the party would observe Bihar bandh on August 20.
He said the party had also decided to launch agitation against the 'irregularities' in the BPL, land reform, blackmarketing, power crisis among others in the state.
