Patna: CPI (ML) Liberation will observe a
nation-wide strike on April 27, coinciding with the bandh call
by Left parties to protest against UPA government`s "failure"
to control escalating prices and ensure food security for the
poor.

"We have decided to call a separate nation-wide general
strike on April 27 on these issues," party general secretary
Dipankar Bhattacharya told reporters here.
The working class and the poor are reeling due to
unabated rising prices of food and essential commodities and
the Congress-led UPA government failed to protect the poor
from the impact, he alleged.
Bhattacharya also castigated the Centre for its alleged
move to privatise public sector enterprises, includng banking,
telecom, insurance, transport, Railways and health.

CPI-ML, he said, would hold a farmers` rally here on May
10 to press for the just rights of peasants and sharecroppers.
