Kolkata: Hitting out at the UPA on corruption and price rise, CPI(M) general secretary Prakash Karat on Sunday called upon party workers to launch a relentless campaign against "burning problems" faced by the people.

"Corruption at highest levels has seriously tarnished the UPA government's image. There is public discontent against price rise. Farmers are in deep crisis. Production costs are rising, but they are not getting remunerative prices. It is the duty of the Leftists to launch a relentless campaign on these burning problems," a CPI(M) statement quoted Karat as saying on the first day of the party's two-day state committee meeting here.

Informing that the CPI(M) was launching a country-wide, five-point campaign on these issues, Karat said the party would also support the nation-wide 'jail bharo' campaign by the central trade unions on November 8.

Karat called for strengthening of the party politically, ideologically and organisationally, the statement said.

According to the statement, the CPI(M) state committee has called upon partymen to lend full support the Left Front's campaign in West Bengal next month against price rise, terror, attack on democracy and the problems of farmers.

While law violation programmes on these issues would be organised at the sub-division and district levels throughout the month, the state-level programme would be held on November 29. The state committee has also supported the state-wide law violation programme by the farmers organisations in the third week of November, the statement said.
