Com.M.K.Pandhe remembered

Though it is three years since veteran trade union leader and CPI(M) PB Member Com.M.K.Pandhe passed away, it seems that he is still with us and his advices and guidances still ring in our ears.
He was a comrade who dedicated his entire life for the cause of workers. He was President of CITU for long years. He always was available for BSNLEU and all of us for seeking guidance and advise. Com.Pandhe passed away on 20 August 2011.
Red Salute to Com.M.K.Pandhe!

FCI asks Govt. to clear Rs.50,000 crore arrears

Food Corporation of India, facing severe financial crisis, has asked the government to clear the arrears of Rs.50,000 crore which is due to it for granting food subsidies for the last 4 years.
Govt. has been paying only 60-80 per cent of the due towards subsidy and the arrears had accumulated. But the pertinent point is that FCI has asked the  govt. to pay the arrears.
What about BSNL management. Why it is not emphatically demanding what is due to it from USOF, Refund of Spectrum etc.?

FDI, FDI every where. Are we going to sell the country?

The UPA government was keen to introduce/increase Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in all sectors as part of implementing the neo-liberal policies. But it could not fully implement due to strong opposition of the Left and other opposition parties.
BJP , which also, opposed FDI in retail etc  is in power now. Instead of learning lessons from the massive defeat of Congress in the elections , which also helped it come to power , the BJP Govt. is aggressively following the same policy. It has increased FDI in Defence and is on the move to increase in Insurance. Banks are also not left out. More FDI means more control for the foreign companies in these crucial sectors. Gradually they will control India’s finance.
The people and the working class have to oppose and defeat this dangerous game. Let us be prepared for the same.
