CPI to launch campaign tomorrow and release manifesto
Chennai, Apr 8 (UNI) The Communist Party of India (CPI) would kickstart its campaign for the May eight assembly polls in Tamil Nadu tomorrow with a public meeting in the city, in which the Party's manifesto would be released.
CPI National Secretary D Raja and Party State Secretary D Pandian told newspersons here today that all the ten candidates of the party, would be introduced at the meeting.
The candidates of the constituent parties in Chennai have also been invited for the meeting, they said.
Mr Pandian said Party National leader A B Bardhan, would campaign in Tamil Nadu for three days from April 25 to 27.
Replying to questions, Mr Raja said people had started learning from past experiences and the DMK-led DPA would win the elections.
''No manipulation of any kind will stop the victory of the DMK combine'', he asserted.
On the MDMK quitting the DPA and aligning with the AIADMK for the polls, Mr Raja said MDMK General Secretary, Vaiko who was imprisoned for 19 months under the now repealed POTA, had now become a ''prisoner of circumstances''.
''I feel sorry for Mr Vaiko, who was known for serious politics.
But now Mr Vaiko is indulging in cheap polemics and indulging in personal attacks. It's not good for the present and future politics of Vaiko'', he added.
Mr Vaiko could not talk about Sethusamudram project. ''He is not talking on political issues, but indulging in petty politics, thus negating his own political position'', the National Secretary of CPI said.
He claimed that ''ideologically and arithmatically, the DMK led DPA will win the polls''.
