Com. Tapan Sen M.P. and General Secretary of CITU has written to the central government to stop the move to close 11 Government Presses out of a total of 16. These presses have been most useful to the government in printing important documents and government publications for along time. These can be well modernised as demanded by Tapan Sen. This will reduce the dependency on the private presses.
It is well understood that the closure of government presses is part of the Capitalist Corporate Policy, which the Modi government is aggressively continuing. ‘Every Sector for the Corportates, All Profits to the Corporates’ has become the slogan of the government.
Telecom, Postal, Banks, Railways, Airlines, Airports – the list for privatisation is increasing every day! Sustained struggle is the only way to defend the PSUs.
