The National Secretariat of Communist Party of India welcomes the proposal of Delhi Government to give free transport to all women in Metro and buses. This will help working women and girl students in particular. We further appeal to Delhi government to also consider giving free education or scholarships to girl students till PhD level. This will help in bridging the gender gap by opening up better opportunities for women in employment and encourage families to allow girls to pursue higher education.

The National Executive of the Communist Party of India (CPI) met on 27-28 May, 2019 at Ajoy Bhavan, CPI headquarters in New Delhi. Punjab State Secretary Bant Singh Brar chaired the meeting.

The meeting reviewed the campaigns and the outcome of the Elections 2019 to the Parliament. On behalf of the National secretariat, General Secretary of the Party Com. Sudhakar Reddy presented the review report.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India strongly condemns the attack on the CPI Begusarai district office with bombs, bricks, stones and sticks by a violent group of BJP activists. As the Lok Sabha results were coming out, these goons in their arrogance over the victory attacked the office injuring some of the comrades present there.

It may be recalled here that former JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar put up a stiff fight as a CPI candidate from the Begusarai seat for the Lok Sabha.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on May 23, 2019 on the people’s verdict of General Elections 2019:

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India while acknowledging the verdict of the people in favour of BJP and NDA, notes that they have miserably failed to win any seat in states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Andhra Pradesh.

The Party points out that it should not be forgotten that the Modi government, BJP-RSS did all kinds manipulations and manoeuvres to polarise the voters in the name of religion and armed forces. They could successfully divert the attention of the people from the real burning issues like unemployment, rural distress and devastating measures like demonetisation and GST.

The National Secretariat issued the following statement on May 20, 2019 condemning the brutal murder of Begusarai party worker Com Fago Tanit:

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India strongly condemns the kidnapping and brutal murder of Com. Fago Tanti by BJP goons along with a criminal group of Begusarai. Com Tanti was an active worker of the party’s Matihani Anchal under Begusarai Lok Sabha Constituency.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement:

The Communist Party of India deplores the continuing violence in West Bengal, during the elections. While both BJP and TMC are to be held responsible for the situation, they try to blame each other.

The CPI strongly condemns the vandalism which took place yesterday in Kolkata in BJP President Amit Shah’s road show leading to the demolition of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar’s statue. It is a big irony that Prime Minister instead of expressing apology for the vandalism and demolition of Vidyasagar’s statue, has declared to install a grand statue of Vidyasagar later.

When there is no national unity there cannot be public security says the Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayaka.
He said this at a seminar organized by the JVP on ‘Our mission to defeat extremism, build national unity and affirm public security’ held at Hatton – Dickoya town Hall yesterday (15th).

Speaking further Comrade Anura Dissanayaka said the three services and the police alone cannot establish national unity in the country.

The May Day commemoration organized by the JVP was held at the head office of the JVP at Pelawatta today (1st) with the slogans “Deplore committing murders! Defeat all extremisms! Build unity among people! ‘

The International Workers’ Day that falls on 1st May is a day commemorated by the working people including the downtrodden masses with dignity. May Day is the day the working masses show their strength, unity and militancy and also their readiness to struggle for their rights and for a new society.

The International Workers’ Day was created to commemorate the workers’ leaders who laid down their lives at the struggle launched by workers in Chicago in 1886 against the oppression and suppression of capitalism and demanding an 8-hour working day. 1st of May was named the International Workers’ Day by the first congress of the Second International that met in Paris in 1889. Hence, May Day is a day that belongs to the working masses lead by the working class and the left movements.

It is evident that the attack on the 21st was an Islam extremist barbaric attack. What is to be done now is to take measures to totally defeat Islam extremist ideology, individual and organizations that follow it. However, the measures being taken by the government don’t seem to be successful. The country cannot be brought back to normalcy without defeating this Islam extremist ideology. Mr Maithripala Sirisena as the President and Mr Ranil Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister, instead of acting in a responsible manner for the country and the people, acted only as the leader of the SLFP or the leader of the UNP respectively from the day they came to power. They fought among themselves and wasted time plotting and conspiring against each other and endangered the national security. The conduct of the President and the Prime Minister after the incidents on the 21st was not a responsible one for the security of the Nation or the people. Both of them attempted to evade responsibility and put it on someone else’s shoulder but to carry out their power agendas. The statements made as the government were contradictory, false, infantile and immature ones. It was proved that they, leave alone the responsibility of the national security, do not deserve even to be a night watchman in a cooperative store.

The WFTU, representing more 97 million workers in 130 countries expresses its solidarity and support the dockworkers in Japan who are taking dynamic measures against the unacceptable and demand of the Japan Harbor Transportation Association for abolishing the current system for determining dockworkers’ minimum wage.

The employers are insisting to present their fake argument that the determined minimum wages of the workers are against the anti-monopoly rules despite the fact that even the labor relations authority rejected this fake argument, clearly declaring that the minimum wage system for dockworkers does not infringe on anti-monopoly rules.
