The three major Left parties contesting the Bihar Assembly elections today appealed to voters to vote for a secular government.

“Voters should vote for a secular government so that social justice could be formed in the State,” U N Mishra, national executive member of the CPI, told reporters here.

Along with the State secretary of CPI-ML (Liberation) Nand Kishore and CPI(M)’s Vijay Kant Thakur, he alleged that all the major parties, including the Congress, RJD and the NDA, had “fooled” the people of Bihar.

They said that they would ask voters to consider issues like unprecedented price rise, unemployment and land reforms.
