The Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India, Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist), Revolutionary Socialist Party and All India Forward Bloc have issued the following statement:
The Modi government has embarked upon a merciless destruction of people’s livelihood which have already been severely assaulted both by the pandemic and the unplanned, unilaterally announced and totally mismanaged nationwide lockdown.
The CPI(M) has always maintained that Aadhaar should not be mandatory for any welfare scheme. The reality is that lakhs of poor are being denied universal rights in the name of non-authentication of Aadhar. This renders vulnerable crores of poor people whose existence is dependent upon the accessibility to welfare schemes. Unfortunately, the majority judgment of the Supreme Court continues to maintain Aadhar as mandatory.
The decision to cut petrol price by two rupees, on the eve of the parliament session is nothing but a poorly concealed ploy to deflect the widespread criticism of the failure of the Government to check inflation.
The people of the country can see that the Congress-led government is itself responsible for stoking price rise and inflation by such measures. The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) demands cancellation of this price rise and restoring the administrative regulation of pricing of petrol.
