SUCI to contest in Kerala, WB, TN, ASSAM
Kochi, Apr 3 (UNI) The Socialist Unity Centre of India (SUCI) today announced it will contest 26 seats in the three-phased Kerala Assembly elections starting later this month.
In a statement here, SUCI Central Committee Member Krishna Chakraborthy said while the UDF, LDF and the BJP were vying to prove who could raise the slogan of ''development'' the loudest, the real issues confronting the people were being neglected.
Attacking the Left, he said while in West Bengal, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee was advocating liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation, in Kerala also, Mr Pinarayi Vijayan had taken out the 'Kerala March', raising the same slogan of development.
The march was flagged off by Leader of the Opposition V S Achuthanandan.
Besides Kerala, SUCI will also contest 125 seats in West Bengal, 20 in Assam and four in Tamil Nadu, he added.
