CPI Congratulates Working Class and Peasantry on their Successful Strike
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement congratulating the Indian working class and peasantry on their one-day all India strike on January 08, 2020:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India congratulates the working class and the Central Trade Unions as well as farmers, agricultural labourers and their organisations for making the one-day all India strike a grand success. The Party notes that the success was in fact a big blow to the anti-people, anti-worker and anti-farmer policies of the RSS-controlled BJP government led by Narendra Modi. Crores of workers, employees, farmers, agricultural labourers and rural people have taken part in the strike.
In many cities across the country, entire shops remained closed and the shopkeepers and traders also registered their protest against Modi governments’ policies. Even in the Prime Minister’s constituency Varanasi and Yogi’s hometown Gorakhpur, shops and establishments were closed down supporting bandh.
Narendra Modi government must read the writing on the wall which speaks of stiff opposition to his government’s neo-liberal policies from employees and workers from all sectors including banking, finance, defence and agrarian sector. The Party wants the government to desist from going ahead further with its anti-worker neo-liberal economic policies.
CPI demands that the just demands of the working class and farmers should be conceded by the government for restoring industrial peace, rural growth, etc. The Party expresses its full solidarity to the working people, from both urban and rural parts of the country to continue their struggles against the Modi government.
