WEST BENGAL-Bandh To What Purpose

WEST BENGAL Bandh: To What Purpose? Ajit Roy ENDORSING a proposal originally mooted by the CPI(M), the Left Front in West Bengal has given a call for a statewide bandh on September 28, 1983. The bandh is designed to press for three groups of demands. These are: (i) remedy of 'grave injustice' meted out to this state, (ii) realignment of Union- state relations, and (iii) concession of the 18-point charter, previously formulated and popularised by the Front. To mobilise mass support behind the bandh call, the State Committee of the CPI(M) has brought out a 44-page booklet in Bengali with a preface by Saroj Mukherji, successor to the late Promode Dasgupta in the leadership of the party. The booklet presents a formidable array of statistics, a large part of which has been elicited through questions in Parliament.
