CPI Extends Full Support to Bank Strike
Communist Party of India general secretary D RAJA issued the following statement today (on December 14, 2021) extending full support to two-days’ bank strike:
The Communist Party of India extends its full support to the proposed bank strike on December 16 and 17 opposing the Union government’s move to privatise public sector banks. In this connection I have earlier written a letter to the prime minister urging him to desist from the move.
It may be recalled here that CPI was in the forefront in the successful fight for bank nationalisation, which paved the way for taking banking to rural areas and other unbanked sections of people.
The Party reiterates its stand that the government must desist from the move and ensure that people’s money is protected and used only for people’s development and not for corporate loot.
