Comrade M. P. Munivenkatappa, the CPI(M) candidate for the Chikkaballapur Lok Sabha Constituency of Karnataka, filed nomination papers today in Chikkaballapura. Comrade U. Basavaraj, Secretary, Comrades Meenakshisundaram & S. Varalaxmi, Secretariat Members, and Comrade Dr. Anil Kumar, Chikkaballapura District Secretariat member, accompanied him. Polling in the constituency will be held on April 26th.
A procession was held from Vokalligara Bhavana to Vyapasandra, where a well-attended public meeting took place. CPIM Politburo member Comrade B. V. Raghavulu criticized the performance of the 10 years of Modi Government, which was filled with lies. In terms of policies and record of performance in defending interests and addressing problems of people of the constituency or state, both BJP and Congress have failed. Hence, he appealed to people to vote for CPI(M), which alone provided an alternative. Comrades M. P. Munivenkatappa, S. Varalaxmi, and Dr. Anil Kumar also spoke at the public meeting.
State Secretariat Members, District Secretaries of Bangalore South, North, Rural DCs, and other leaders were present at the Dias.
Comrade M. P. Munivenkatappa is currently the Secretary of the Chikkaballapura DC and Secretariat Member of the State Committee.
