Thiruvananthapuram: CPM’s state-wide march Jankeeya Prathirodha Jadha ((People's Resistance Rally) ) led by the party state secretary MV Govindan concluded in Putharikandam Maidan here on Saturday.
CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury while addressing the gathering said that PM Modi-led union government has been labelling entities questioning the regime as anti-nationals. He slammed the regime over its stand on a recently released BBC documentary on Modi. He also criticised central agencies for allegedly witch-hunting opposition leaders.
According to Govindan, Kerala is a state in which a labourer can live a dignified life. He pointed out that through this march he was able to experience the public’s love and warmth for the government.
The march was organised to mark the party’s protest against the BJP-led union government’s policies, anti-Kerala stance and communalism. The march began on February 20 in Kasaragod. Throughout the march, there were five meetings held each day, and the party claims that no less than 15 lakh people participated at 135 locations.
