Kolkata, Oct 30 (UNI) In a bid to counter the Oppositions' "miscampaign", the ruling Left Front will resort to a door-to-door district-wise canvass from November 15 to make people aware of the disruptive activities in Darjeeling and some other parts of the state.
Informing this to mediapersons here, Front Chairman Biman Basu said secessionism, communalism and terrorism were increasing in the country, including West Bengal, and the campaign was to mobilise public opinion against it.
''Not only in Darjeeling, secessionist activities were noticed in Purulia, Bankura and the adjoining areas with the active support of the Oppositions' and a counter-campaign is needed to thwart the sinister designs,'' Mr Basu observed.
Referring to the recent violence in Mumbai and its retaliation in Bihar advocating provincialism, Mr Basu said the Centre should take appropriate measures to contain such incidents.
Mentioning about the PTTI controversy, he said the state government should continue dialogue with the Centre to find ways to resolve the issue.
Mr Basu also informed that Dr Barun Mukherjee of All India Forward Bloc (AIFB) would contest the vacant seat in Rajya Sabha.
