Web Desk‌Updated: Monday Mar 2, 2020

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM : CPI(M) workers, their families and relatives must turn proactive in the  fundraising drive summoned by the party, for  victims of  Delhi violence, said CPI(M) State Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan.

On 7  and  8  March  this week, bucket collections shall be organized  at Branch level. Party leaders will also take part in the drive, visiting individuals,   homes and shops  for the purpose.  CPI(M)’s Central Committee called for the fundraising drive in order to help  hundreds of people who have lost everything they possessed  to arson and loot that rocked the national capital recently. Monies collected shall be also used to pay compensation to families of the dead.

The recent riots and bloodshed in Delhi caused untold damages to scores of people. Majority of those who suffered substantial loss belong to lower rungs of the society and belong to  all religious segments. Many of these victims continue to remain in abysmal conditions, staring into uncertain future.

The secular-minded  people of Kerala have always  volunteered in times of disaster. Everybody, with love for  mankind,  must come forward  this time around, to help the Delhi riot victims and contribute whatever possible during the collection rounds  to be held on 7th  and 8th of   March, said Kodiyeri in a statement.
