THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The All-India Forward Bloc would join the agitation called by the Left Democratic Front in Kerala against the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) signed by the Union government with the ASEAN countries, the party’s national secretary G. Devarajan said at a press meet on Saturday. The FTA would undermine the agriculture economy of Kerala since the ASEAN countries were major producers of the farm commodities produced by the State. Unchecked imports of these commodities would lead to steep fall in prices for Kerala’s farm products.
