Left parties call for AP bandh on Feb 8 against Union Budget

Vijayawada, Feb 3 Left parties in Andhra Pradesh have called for a bandh (shutdown) on February 8 to protest against the “injustice” done to the state in what the parties called an “anti-people” budget.

In a press release jointly issued here by the Communist Party of India, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) and students and labour organisations, they asked people to participate in large numbers to make the bandh a success.

These parties, in the release, alleged that the Centre had ingored AP while doling out huge sums of money to states which are heading for polls in the near future.

The Left parties added that the Union Budget 2018 had ignored the poor and neglected the country’s rural economy.
