Bloc pleads for votes to trounce CPM

Balarampur (Purulia), May 8: It was another election rally, and not quite.

Four days before rural Bengal goes to poll, this bustling town 35 km south of Purulia town on the Ranchi-Tata road saw a public meeting where a Left Front ally was asking for votes to defeat not the Trinamul Congress, the BJP or the Congress, but the CPM.

We are sorry to say the concept of a Left Front has not developed in Bengal, especially at the panchayat level, said Bloc general secretary Debabrata Biswas. It is time to end this single-party rule of the CPM.

As allegations of the CPMs efforts to foil todays rally poured in, the Bloc leader said: We had thought the front committee would act as a safety valve in village-level governance. But that did not happen.
