Five Left parties came together to extend support to the farmers’ organisations who have called for a Bharat Bandh on December 8 and have called upon other political parties too to come forward to stand with the farmer’s cause.

“The Left parties condemn the RSS/BJP’s malicious campaign, on preposterous charges, against the struggle of our annadatas to safeguard Indian agriculture and the country’s food security,” the joint statement read.

 The statement is signed by Sitaram Yechury, General Secretary of CPI (M), D Raja, General Secretary of CPI, Dipankar Bhattacharya, General Secretary of CPI (ML), Debabrata Biswas, General Secretary of AIFB and Manoj Bhattaharya, General Secretary of RSP.
