Remdesivir: Break Patent Monopoly - Issue Compulsory License

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on July 5, 2020

GILEAD Sciences’ anti-viral drug Remdesivir has shown efficacy in treating Covid-19 patients. Media reports indicate that the US, which is hoarding all drugs found to be useful in combatting the Covid pandemic, has bought the entire stock of Remdesivir from Gilead for the next three months. It will therefore not be available for the rest of the world.

Privatisation of Railways: Self Subservience, Not Self Reliance

CPI(M)  Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on July 2

THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly opposes the decision for privatisation of the Indian Railways particularly the running of passenger trains by private investors over the Indian Railways network. This is the first time that this is happening in independent India. The private sector utilising the network established over centuries with all the required infrastructure will run passenger trains making super profits.

PM’s Announcements: Grossly Inadequate

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on July 1, 2020
THE announcements made by the prime minister yesterday are totally inadequate to meet the crisis of survival and livelihood being faced by crores of our people.  The provision of five kg of foodgrains and one kg of pulses is grossly inadequate to meet the survival needs of the people who have been deprived of their livelihood or food for over three months. 10 kg of foodgrain per individual per month for a period of six months is the minimum that needs to be ensured.

Clarifications Over PM’s Statement Compounds Confusion

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on June 21.

THE government had convened an all party meeting belatedly, on June 19, to brief the opposition parties about the sequence of developments leading to the conflict at Indo-China LAC. PM Modi while addressing the meeting said unambiguously that there was “no intrusion, no occupation and no capture of our posts”. Then, why the conflict? Why the martyrdom of our brave soldiers?

Stop Privatisation of Commercial Coal Mining

CPI(M)  Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on June 25

THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) extends its support to the three-day countrywide strike by all the federations and unions of workers demanding the scrapping of the government decision to allow commercial mining of coal by private sector including foreign entities and the move to privatise public sector coal mining companies.

Meet the Urgent Demands of the People

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement on June 17, 2020

THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) congratulates all its Party units, members and supporters who have participated in a big way in all parts of the country on the protest day on June 16.  The good response to the call shows that the demands raised of the central government are the urgent need of the people.

De-Escalate the Situation on the LAC

CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on June 16, 2020

IT is unfortunate that during the de-escalation process on the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh, a clash has taken place at  Galwan valley. This has taken place after the talks between the two sides at a high military level began on June 6 to discuss the process of disengagement. Both sides have reported casualties.

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) expresses its deep condolences at the death of an Indian officer and two soldiers.
