Chandrasekhar to lead rally against Centre

GANDHINAGAR, SEPT. 2. The former Prime Minister, Mr. Chandrasekhar, will take the lead in a joint rally of a section of the Congress(I), the socialists and Swadeshi Jagran Manch to cry a halt to the BJP Government at the Centre against ``blindly pursuing the pro-American economic liberalisation policy.''

The rally beginning from Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad on Gandhi Jayanti Day, on October 2, is likely to be the first public outcry against the decade-old globalisation policy which was further ``deepening'' the economic divide between the haves and havenots in the country. A meeting for launching, what the organisers called the ``political war for economic freedom,'' was held here this week attended by Mr. Chandrasekhar.
