Gadchiroli Sept. 18 (District Correspondent) ‘Even after 75 years of independence, inequality in this country has not ended. Unemployment, hunger, poverty, farmers’ suicides have also not ended yet. The voice of the opposition is being suppressed by oppression. Democracy, freedom of expression is being taken away. There is a need to fight against all this injustice and oppression. Farmers, laborers, youths, students should unite under the leadership of Lal Bawta and struggle’.
