Press Statement

The Left parties – Communist Party of India, Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) Liberation, All India Forward Bloc and Revolutionary Socialist Party – have issued the following statement:

All India Protest against the Deepening Economic Crisis and

Growing Misery on the People

The Left parties are organizing a joint convention on September 20, 2019 at 3 p.m. at the Constitution Club, Rafi Marg, New Delhi to plan out national level protest actions against deepening economic crisis and greater misery being imposed on the people, accompanied by a massive job loss.

The recent slew of measures announced by the Finance Minister amounting over Rs. 70,000 crores, far from providing relief, will only deepen the crisis further. What is required is to increase public investments in a big way and build our much needed infrastructure while generating jobs and increasing the purchasing power in the hands of the people.

The convention will draw up concrete plans for protest actions all over the country. The Left parties appeal to all democratic forces, who are prepared to join these protest actions, to come forward and strengthen the people’s movement.
