The Bihar state conference of the Party was held from March 6-8, 2022 at Samastipur, the land of martyrs who sacrificed their lives holding red flags in their hands fighting for land and against feudal oppression since the 1970’s.
The conference started with a big rally at Patel Maidan which bore a festive look. Addressing the rally, Party general secretary, Sitaram Yechury paid tributes to the martyrs of Samastipur. He lambasted the RSS led BJP government at the centre for its disastrous seven years rule which has brought all round miseries to all sections of the people. Economy is in completes mess, unemployment is the highest in the last 45 years and the sky rocketing prices of essential commodities due to ever increasing prices of transport fuels and gas, have ruined the lives of the common people. He particularly emphasised the need to fight the pernicious Hindutva agenda of the RSS, by bringing all the Left, secular and democratic forces into a united fight to save the secular and democratic character of the constitution. He recalled the unity of the people of all faiths during the anti-imperialist struggle which is now under constant attack by the RSS and its affiliated units, which needs to be resisted at every step.
