Kanyakumari: CPI-M general secretary Prakash Karat yesterday launched the southern leg of his party’s “Sangharsh Sandesh Jatha” (march for struggle) — that will highlight problems faced by the common people, including price rise and corruption.
The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) will also send three other ‘jathas’ — from Kolkata on March 1, Amristar on March 4 and from Mumbai on March 8. They will all culminate at Delhi’s Ramlila grounds with a rally on March 19.
Other smaller ‘jathas’ will begin from from Assam, Odisha, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and will join the main marches.
The southern leg of the ‘jatha’, led by politburo member S Ramachandran Pillai, will enter Kerala today. It will pass through eight of the state’s 14 districts before entering Tamil Nadu again.
More than 10,000km will be covered by the four marches.
