Note on Political Developments
(Adopted by the Central Committee
At its Meeting – June 18-20, 2016)
In a situation where burdens on the people are being relentlessly mounted, the Central Committee of the CPI(M) has called on the Party units to observe nationwide protest action focusing on price rise and growing unemployment from July 11 to 17, 2016.
Notified in September 2013 during the last leg of the UPA-II’s tenure, the National Food Security Act (NFSA) of 2013 has now been existence for more than 30 months. Although it kick started with 11 states/UTs (Bihar, Chandigarh, Chhattisgarh Delhi, Haryana, HP, Karnataka, MP, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Punjab) its progress has been slow and tardy.
The Polit Bureau discussed the draft report to be presented to the Party Plenum on Organization. This draft will now be subjected for discussion in the Party Central Committee meeting scheduled to meet in Delhi from November 13 to 16. The Plenum will be held in Kolkata from December 27 to 31, 2015.
The Central Committee expressed serious concern at the rapidly deteriorating conditions of the people’s livelihood that are a direct result of the more aggressive pursuit of neo-liberal economic policies by the BJP-led Modi government.
Contrary to the propaganda that the BJP government has unleashed on the completion of one year in office, the livelihood conditions of the vast majority of the Indian people are actually declining. The massive hikes in the prices of petroleum products in the background of the fall in the international price of crude oil is fuelling all-round inflation, particularly of food items and essential commodities.
