Addressing a huge rally convened by the CPI-M at the sprawling Brigade Parade ground here, he said: “You all have come here because you realise what is the condition of the state now. This is a question rankling all the people. “This hellish condition cannot go on. How long can an uncivilized and dishonest government continue?” he asked in a brief speech while presiding over the rally.
