The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) condemns the decision taken by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs to open up coal mining to Indian and foreign companies in the private sector. This is part of the aggressive pursuit of neo-liberal economic policies by the Narendra Modi government.

A delegation comprising of CPI(M) Polit Bureau members S. Ramachandran Pillai and Brinda Karat met the Chief Election Commissioner Shri. O. P.

Rawat today for expressing concerns over the appointment of special observer in Tripura.  The delegation submitted the following memorandum to the CEC:

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) expresses its deep concern at the grave implications of the “Ram Raj Rath Yatra” flagged off yesterday at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh.  This rally was flagged off by the RSS-affiliated VHP General Secretary in the presence of Faizabad BJP MP, Ayodhya’s BJP Mayor and other BJP leaders.

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) dips its banner in salute to veteran communist and trade union leader Comrade Mohd. Amin.

Comrade Mohd. Amin died this afternoon. He was ninety years old.

Mohd. Amin was born in Kolkata to poor parents who had migrated from Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.

Shri Nilotpal Basu, member of the Central Secretariat of Communist Party of India (Marxist) met Chief Election Commissioner, Shri Om Prakash Rawat, today at the Election Commission office on the question of holding peaceful, free and fair elections to the Tripura Assembly.
The discussion was cordial and the CEC assured to look into concerns raised by the Party as detailed out in the representation (attached herewith) with all seriousness.

The Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of India (CPI) issued following statement to the press:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech in Parliament thanking the president is more like a BJP leader’s routine election speech than the speech of the PM.

Prime Minister is a constitutional authority and is expected to speak with dignity and decorum. He misused the platform of the Parliament, to shower venom on political opponents and made some allegations with half-truths. While BJP supported Telangana statehood in Parliament, Modi made adverse remarks about it. He accused Congress for dividing Andhra Pradesh and India also, but did not speak a word about promises to Andhra Pradesh in Parliament on special status and later on special package implementation. Prime Minister did not utter a word on Rafale deal which the government is trying to avoid from transparency in the name of security.

The statement by the Defence minister in Parliament with regard to the agreement for the Rafale fighter planes is completely unacceptable.

Ever since the deal was renegotiated there have been several reports that allege that the price being paid for the planes in question is much higher than what had been decided in the earlier agreement.

On 2nd February 2018 the Supreme Court of India has sought a response from Union of India and the Election Commission in the petition filed by the CPI

(Marxist) challenging the constitutionality of the introduction of Electoral Bonds by the Finance Act, 2017.

 The Finance Act, 2017 amended four different statues, namely the Reserve Bank of India Act 1934, The Representation of Peoples Act 1951, The Income Tax Act 1961 and the Companies Act, 2013 to introduce the concept of Electoral Bonds. The Electoral Bonds was operationalized by the Central Government by issuing a notification on 2.01.2018.

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

Union Budget 2018-19:

Protest Against Further Attacks on People's Livelihood

 This last full budget of the Modi government before the next general elections reflects, once again, it's clear commitment to serve the interests of foreign and domestic big corporates while mounting further assaults  on the vast majority of the working people of our country.
