The widespread support for the hartal manifested the anger of the people against the anti-people measures taken by the UPA government. The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) demands of the Manmohan Singh government that it cancel the FDI in retail, the disinvestment of public sector shares, rollback the price hike of diesel and restriction on gas cylinders. The struggle against these anti-people measures should be intensified in the coming days.
September 20 Protest
The CPI(M) will intensify the struggle against these measures to get them reversed. All parties who have come out against these policies should support the all India protest action on September 20. Unless the Manmohan Singh government rolls back these anti-people measures, it has no right to continue in office.
We appeal to the people to rise in protest against these anti-people measures. Let there be a powerful protest on September 20 through hartals, pickettings, demonstrations and court arrest programmes.
