CPI(M) Launches 'Mission 360 Degree' Project to Regain Lost Ground in West Bengal
CPI(M) West Bengal state committee is carrying out various programs in every district to revive its strength in the state. One alternative program launched recently is called 'Mission 360 Degree'. This was stated by CPI(M) state secretary Mohammad Salim and Polit Bureau member Surjya Kanta Mishra.
In 2011, the CPI(M) lost power in the state, and after that, it gradually lost political ground in West Bengal. After 2021, they have been able to turn things around a bit. This time the Left Front is desperate to get back its lost influence. To that end, they have taken on a bunch of public welfare projects in the districts. Mohammad Salim said, “All spheres of human life have been affected during the tenure of the present Trinamool government. In all these cases, we have to try to be by the side of the people. For which the mission is to adopt the idea of 360 degrees.” In his words, “Leftists are not in the government, not in the power of panchayat or municipality, but they are on the side of the people.”
The programs under 'Mission 360 Degree' aims to build public health centres, alternative learning centres and various livelihood support centres in each district of the state. The varied volunteer services by the Left during the pandemic aroused a wide response among the common people. The party has given new instructions to continue those public welfare projects.
About ten remodelling coaching classes will be started in each district within the next six months. Awareness should be raised among the people about the public health centres, polyclinics, etc., which are already run by the party to provide medical services at affordable prices.
According to the CPI(M), people are being subjected to ultimate harassment due to various policies of the Central and the State government. That is why they want to form self-reliant groups with unemployed youth for employment. Apart from these programs, mass protests against various wrong policies of the central and state governments will continue, said Salim.
According to party sources, the Left has to prove itself by helping different people in society. The struggle of CPI(M) will continue to unite people from all sectors to demand their rights, they assert.
About this program, Surjya Kanta Mishra wrote on his Facebook page – “Mission 360 Degree, CPI(M) has an alternative program across the state. Self-help groups, Education to public health - at least ten alternative schools in each district. The struggle for Left alternatives will be intensified by spreading public health awareness and providing affordable medicine and medicines at a fair price. At least one public health centre in each district, enabling people to be employable and earning; building and managing strong cooperatives, and helping the enterprising people of the society.”
