ഡൽഹിയിൽ കമ്മിറ്റിക്കും മറ്റുമായി വരുമ്പോൾ മിക്കവാറും കാണുവാനും സംസാരിക്കുവാനും കഴിഞ്ഞു.
കോഴിക്കോട്ടിന്റെ തന്നതായ സൗഹൃദം എന്നും മനസ്സിൽ സൂക്ഷിച്ച ജനനായകൻ.
ഇനിയും ഒട്ടേറെ കാലം രംഗത്തുണ്ടാവേണ്ടതായിരുന്നു.
സൗഹൃദത്തിന്റെ ഒട്ടേറെ ഓർമ്മകൾ.
സഖാവെ ലാൽ സലാം!

Replacement of photo of Jawaharlal Nehru with Savarkar in ICHR Freedom Fighters in Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.

ICHR has gone beyond all limits. It has replaced the photo of Jawaharlal Nehru, leader of the Independence Struggle and first Prime Minister of India in the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav poster , with that of Savarkar, who apologized and assured full support to the British Government. This is unpardonable. The ICHR should reverse their decision and apologize to the nation.

Demolition of Public Sector – Resistance has to be strengthened.

The central trade unions, Federations of central government, PSUs and other trade unions are in a bitter resistance fight against the total demolition PSU policy of the Central government. Many Central PSUs have already been closed or have been handed over to private. Others are in the line.

Despite strong protests and agitational programmes, including strikes, by the working class, Modi government is going on with its closure/privatisation programme. Even the strong protests by the opposition political parties, inside and out side Parliament, are completely ignored.

Probably Modi government is not sure whether it will return to power one more time. Hence it wants the handover of the profitable PSUs to the corporates at the earliest.

Resistance of the people has to be strengthened against the demolition of the PSUs, the property of the people and the nation.
