CPI Deplores Move to Handover Electricity Sector to Corporates
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (on May 12, 2020) terming the Modi government’s move to amend the Electricity Act as a retrograde move to handover the sector to corporate houses:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India terms the Electricity Amendment Bill, 2020 as a move to handover the power sector to corporate houses and severely condemns the plan.
The RSS-controlled BJP government led by Narendra Modi uses the COVID-19 painful days to push through its agenda of total privatisation. The Party warns the government on the move and urges it to desist from such anti-worker, anti-farmer and anti-people move which also infringes on the powers of the states, posing a threat to the federalism.
The Party demands immediate withdrawal of the retrograde proposal.
