Kolkata/Bhubaneshwar, Mar 15 (ANI): The Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI), the youth wing of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), took to streets in their stronghold, Kolkata, extending support to the communist alliance, the Left Front, candidates in the forthcoming general elections.
"Our state needs some industrialisation process and the Left Front Government, We want to eradicate the forces who don't want to bring industries in our state but want the industry in Gujarat," said Noor Alam, district committee member of DYFI.
Meanwhile, Communist Party of India General Secretary A B Bardhan has said that he would be meeting Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Sunday to discuss the formalities of the newly-formed Third Front.
Addressing a news conference in Bhubaneshwar on Saturday, Bardhan denied rift in the Third Front over the BSP insisting that the front declare her as their prime ministerial candidate.
BSP's Mayawati was conspicuous when the "Third Front", a group of smaller political parties, including the communists, was formally launched in a bid to provide an alternative to the two main national coalitions. (ANI)
