Kolkata, Sep 1 (UNI) The ruling Left Front in West Bengal took out massive ''anti-imperialism'' processions in Kolkata and Siliguri today protesting the price hike, the India-US nuclear deal and the UPA government's foreign policy.
Led by prominent leaders of the Left parties, scores of thousands of people marched in both the processions virtually choking both the cities, holding banners that read, ''We want independence, sovereignty and peace''.
The procession in Kolkata started from Park Circus Maidan in the south and traversed a long way to end at Deshbandh Park in the north.
Besides a section of writers, intellectuals and students, members and supporters of all the four major Left parties-- the CPI(M), CPI, Forward Bloc and the RSP participated in the processions.
