The Leftists in the Indian State of West Bengal
will be organizing a massive rally on August
31 to commemorate 50 years of the food movement that claimed 80 martyrs.
The function is an answer to a similar rally by
Trinomool Congress(TMC), the main opposition party.
Leftists hope that despite their defeat in the
Lok Sabha Election and their popularity at the ebb, the rally will energize its rank and file.
