The Modi government has not succeeded in pressing and accomplishing any gains on the issues concerning our bilateral relations. The US has not acknowledged India's patents and intellectual property regime, the food security policy, or, issuance of visas for Indian professionals and personnel.
The CC discussed about current political situation. It noted that the three ordinances issued recently reveal the true character of the Modi government. Bowing to the demands of corporate lobby to dilute the Land Acquisition Act, it issued the ordinance bypassing the parliament. Similarly Coal Ordinance. The CPI(M) will join hands with all other political parties and organisations that are opposed to these ordinances and build a nationwide movement against these measures.
Press Statement Six Left parties, the CPI, CPI(M), CPI(ML)-Liberation, AIFB, SUCI(C) and RSP have issued the following statement:
The Modi government and the BJP have unleashed the forces of Hindutva which threatens the secular and democratic values of the Indian Republic. It is at such a juncture that the Government has invited President Obama of the United States of America to be the Chief Guest of the Republic Day on January 26.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) objects to the remarks made by President Obama that India open the doors to Wal-Mart for retail trade and other American investments in India. The statement by Obama is a brazen attempt to pressurize the UPA government to adopt such steps as opening multibrand retail to FDI.
