NEW DELHI: The Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist)-New Democracy on Friday staged a protest march against the imperialistic policies of the Central Government to mark the 76th anniversary of martyrdom of Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev.

Starting from Science Academy at ITO, the activists and workers of CPI (ML)-New marched to Ferozeshah Kotla where several of their leaders and some other intellectuals addressed the gathering.

Delhi Party secretary Aparna told the gathering that, since Independence, the ruling classes of India chose an imperialist-dependent model of "growth" as opposed to a self-dependent, pro-people model of development. As a result, the situation has gone from bad to worse for the common man.

President, Naujawan Bharat Sabha, Mrigank said Bhagat Singh was well aware of the danger that the white Englishman would merely be replaced by a certain "block" of people who were brokers of imperialism. That was why Bhagat Singh specified that independence meant the freedom for workers and ordinary people, Dr. Mrigank told the gathering.

Hindi poet Pankaj Singh and N. K. Bhattacharya of Jan Hastakshep also addressed the gathering. They also criticised the Government's decision to allow foreign direct investment in retail sector, the Special Economic Zones Act, 2005, and also demanded that forcible land acquisitions should be stopped. They also demanded that the Government should scrap the Land Acquisition Act, 1894. The Hindu
