CPI-ML (Liberation) general secretary Deepankar Bhattacharya today released party’s election manifesto with an appeal to the voters to end the “reign of loot and rehetoric - change the face of Bihar through land reforms.”

The party is contesting the upcoming six-phase assembly elections on seat sharing arrangements with two other major Left parties, Communist Party of India and the CPI(M), on majority of the 243 assembly seats but there would friendly contest among them on more than 30 seats.

Releasing the manifesto, Mr. Bhattacharya said “Its a welcome sign that Left forces in Bihar are now showing an increasing inclination for united struggles - rejecting the ruinous course of alliances with the rulers, Left ranks are getting united to reclaim the fighting legacy of the Left.

He said to strengthen the politics of change and justice, Bihar requires a powerful unity of Left and democratic forces and appealed to all sincere socialists and democratic activists of diverse trends to come together and join hands with the CPI(ML) and the Left as a whole to take Bihar forward towards “land reforms and genuine welfare of the people and defeat the forces of corruption, nepotism, communalism, feudal reaction and autocracy.”
