Kerala CPI(M) mourns Hugo Chavez
Thiruvananthapuram CPI(M) in Kerala has expressed grief at the death of Venezuelan President and socialist icon Hugo Chavez.

In a condolence message, the party state committe said on Thursday that Chavez was a world model for progressive politics who led his oil rich country to economic and social progress by ending exploitation of its resources by the United States.

"Chavez has been a source of inspiration not only for Latin America but for leftists in the entire world by waging a relentless struggle against imperialist forces and their hegemonic policies," the message said.

The party would organise meetings to condole the death of the Venuzuelan leader across the state on Friday.
