Support Transport Workers’ Strike
CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on August 5
THE Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) extends its support to the one day national strike call on August 7, against the retrograde provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act Amendment Bill and the continuous rise in the prices of petroleum products.
The demands raised by the All India Co-ordination Committee of Road Transport Workers Organisations are genuine and the government must favourably consider their proposals.
Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) calls upon the central government to accept their genuine demands and not to put the economy and the general public in grave discomfort that will be caused by this strike.
