Left parties to unitedly contest Bihar Assembly polls: CPI(M)

Patna: The Left parties will unitedly
contest the upcoming Bihar Assembly polls, CPI(M) Politburo
member S R Pillai said on Tuesday.

All Left parties like the CPI(M), CPI, CPI(ML) and the
RSP will contest the Bihar Assembly polls unitedly and the
distribution of seats among the parties will be settled soon,
he told reporters here.

The scientific management of water for irrigation
facilities for farmers will be the key thrust of the Left
alliance, Pillai said, adding flood and drought are problems
in the state due to lack of proper water management policy.

The excess water from one region can be diverted to
another region faced with drought by scientific implementation
of the water management policy, he said.

Bihar has the distinction of having one of the most
fertile lands for agriculture, but due to lack of vision of
its political masters it could never become a leader in
agriculture production.

However, the Left parties have a vision of an
alternative model of development of Bihar, the CPI(M)
Politburo member said.

Referring to the low key presence of the CPI(M) in the
state bordering West Bengal, which it has been ruling for over
30 years, Pillai hoped that the Left parties would put up an
improved performance in Bihar.
