FREE FLOW OF LIQUOR, MONEY, MUS­CLE POWER AND MIS­USE OF THE GOV­ERN­MENT MA­CHIN­ERY IN THE ELEC­TIONS WAS DE­PLORED IN MEET­ING

CHANDIGARH: In a meet­ing of Pun­jab State Com­mit­tee of the Marx­ist Com­mu­nist Party of In­dian (MCPI) (United) on Sun­day con­cerns were raised on the al­leged ex­cesses in pan­chayat elec­tions.

Free flow of liquor, money, mus­cle power and mis­use of the gov­ern­ment ma­chin­ery was de­plored.

The state com­mit­tee wel­comed the open­ing up of the Kartarpur cor­ri­dor be­tween In­dia and Pak­istan and hoped that it would work as a bridge be­tween the peo­ple of the two coun­tries and will re­duce ten­sion at the bor­der.

Pre­sent­ing a re­port, Kuldip Singh said the eco­nomic and po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion in In­dia was dis­tress­ing. Prem Singh Bhangu gave a brief re­port on the party or­gan­i­sa­tion and its mass or­gan­i­sa­tions, es­pe­cially on the trade union, and the Kisan front and ex­pressed com­plete sat­is­fac­tion on na­tion­wide strike on Jan­uary 8-9, a call that the Cen­tral Trade Unions had given.

‘LAW AND OR­DER SIT­U­A­TION BAD IN PUN­JAB’

“Law and or­der sit­u­a­tion in Pun­jab has to­tally col­lapsed and drug re­lated deaths and its sup­ply is go­ing on as usual,” the meet­ing claimed. The state com­mit­tee also sup­ported the de­mands of gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees and pen­sion­ers and asked the gov­ern­ment to ac­cept them.

The meet­ing was held at the KK Kaushal Me­mo­rial Bhawan in Do­raha. Prem Singh Nanva presided the meet­ing in which mem­bers from Pa­tiala, Chandigarh, Lud­hi­ana and Mo­hali were present.

DEL­E­GATES FROM PUN­JAB TO TAKE PART IN CON­CLAVE

It was also de­cided that about 50 del­e­gates from Pun­jab will par­tic­i­pate in the 4th All-In­dia Con­fer­ence of MCPI (United) to be held at Thiru­van­tha­pu­ram, Ker­ala, start­ing on Fe­bru­ary 8.

It urged upon the cen­tral and the state gov­ern­ments to ful­fil prom­ises made in the elec­tions and con­demned the gov­ern­ment for fail­ing to check the in­creas­ing prices of all es­sen­tial com­modi­ties.
