The party will reach out to all the people in North 24 Parganas district

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) workers will undertake a door-to-door campaign across the North 24 Parganas district to explain the shortcomings of the Trinamool Congress-led government, secretary of the district committee Gautam Deb said here on Sunday.

“There are one crore and ten lakh people who live in the district. In the coming months, once the party congress at Kozhikode is over, we will conduct an intensive door-to-door campaign to reach out to at least one crore people and talk to them about what Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's government has done over these last 10 months,” Mr. Deb, who was the Housing Minister in the previous Left Front government, told journalists after a conference of the district committee.

Mr. Deb said the party would reach out to all the people in the district – whether or not they voted for the Left Front in the 2011 Assembly polls – and speak about the performance of the Trinamool Congress-led government.

Asked about an attack on a local party office, allegedly by supporters of the Trinamool Congress, Mr. Deb said that after his return from the upcoming party congress the office would be reopened.

“Let us see how the Mamata Banerjee government is able to prevent it,” he said.

The former Chief Minister and CPI(M) Polit Bureau member, Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, also addressed the conference and briefed the local leadership about the upcoming party congress.
