Kolkata, Jan 11(UNI) Against in the backdrop of a political storm over industrialisation, the 22nd state conference of the CPI(M) begins here on January 14 to chalk out direction for the party and the Left Front Government to go ahead with its developmental programmes.
In a bid to counter the diverse opposition forces and the rebellion even from within the ruling front, the party will also organise a public rally on January 13 in support of overall development while denouncing the spate of violence that the state witnessed during the agitation in Nandigram and Singur.
'' The rally to be held at the Brigade Parade ground will be one of the biggest in the state,'' CPI(M) state Secretary Biman Basu today said.
The rally would raise slogans in favour of overall industrialisation, protection of the state's democratic atmosphere and maintenance of peace, he said.
The four-day state conference would review the work of the state Government, the panchayats and the municipal bodies--their successes and shortcomings--and deliberate on various proposals. The conference would also discuss the political and organisational reports.
Party's General Secretary Prakash Karat and his Polit Bureau colleagues S R Pillai, Brinda Karat and Sitaram Yechury would be among those attending the conference, Mr Basu said.
