Kolkata: The Left Front, including associated parties, have given a general strike call in Bengal on December 8 in support of the Bharat bandh call by farmer associations against the Centre’s recent farm laws.
“The farmers’ agitation in Delhi has turned into a historic stir. The five Left Parties are party to the struggle and have supported the bandh call. A total 16 parties in Bengal have given a general strike call in the state in support of the agitating farmers,” a joint statement issued by the 16 parties stated.
CPM leader Mohammad Salim questioned Trinamool’s role in the Lok Sabha when the three bills were tabled. “What were the 22 Trinamool MPs doing in the Lok Sabha? The Trinamool chief has jumped into the scene when the stir is spreading,” he said.
Bengal Pradesh Congress president Adhir Chowdhury also gave a call against BJP and Trinamool from Purulia’s Joypur. “We need to remove both BJP and Trinamool from Bengal to put the state back on the development route,” he said.
