LDF to step up struggle against price rise

TPURAM: The CPI (M)-led ruling LDF in Kerala would launch protests across the state as part of the Lefts national campaign against price rise, holding the Centre responsible for the serious situation.

Thousands of LDF volunteers would picket select central government offices in all the 140 assembly segments in the state, LDF Convener Vaikom Viswan told reporters.

The LDF state committee, which met here, asked its district units to chalk out the agitation programmes, he said.

The policies of the UPA Government were responsible for the situation. Even in allotment of foodgrain from the central pool, the states requirements were not taken into account, resulting in open market prices soaring, he charged.
