CALL FROM CPI (M) WEST BENGAL: ‘Translate Peoples’ Discontent into Concrete Movement’




Percy Bysshe Shelly

Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number -
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you -
Ye are many - they are few.

A SPECIAL session and the concluding session of the 14th conference of Students’ Federation of India, which was held at Madurai, heard and reflected the clarion call of Percy Bysshe Shelly, the revolutionary poet, through the inspiring speeches of former SFI president Sitaram Yechury, MP, and SFI general secretary Ritabrata Banerjee.




9TH ALL INDIA DYFI CONFERENCE CALL TO YOUTH: ‘Join the Nationwide Movement against Neo-Liberal Policies’




CONTRACT WORKERS IN POWER UTILITIES: National Convention Decides Protracted Struggle




Leaders of the Samajwadi Party, Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India, Telugu Desam Party, Biju Janata Dal, Janata Dal (S), All India Forward Bloc and Revolutionary Socialist Party issued the following statement on September 15, 2012. THE UPA government has stuck cruel blows on the people one after another. 1) It has raised the price of diesel by Rs 5 per litre, stoking price rise and burdening the farmers. 2) It has limited the subsidised gas cylinder per family to six, and the rest will have to be bought at the market price which is more than double. 3) It has opened the multi-brand retail trade to foreign supermarket chains, endangering the livelihood of more than four crore people occupied in retail trade and the mass of consumers. 4) It is selling off shares of profitable public sector units and navaratna companies like NALCO and Oil India. We appeal to the people to rise in protest against these anti-people measures. We appeal to the farmers, workers, women and youth to join the protest. We appeal to the transporters, shopkeepers and traders organisations to join the struggle. We appeal to all sections of the people, all patriotic-minded citizens to join the movement. Let us all unite to stop these measures which will further burden the people and ruin their livelihood. Let there be a powerful protest on September 20 through hartals, picketings, demonstrations and court arrest programmes. Signatories to the statement were Mulayam Singh Yadav (president, Samajwadi Party), H D Deve Gowda (president, Janata Dal-S), Prakash Karat (general secretary, CPI-M), S Sudhakar Reddy (general secretary, CPI), Naveen Patnaik (president, BJD), Chandrababu Naidu (president, TDP), Debabrata Biswas (general secretary, AIFB) and T J Chandrachoodan (general secretary, RSP).




CPI(M) MP Writes to Oil Minister On Distortion of Facts




The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following statement on September on September 14, 2012. THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the unprecedented hike in the price of diesel and the limiting of six cooking gas cylinders per family per year. The hike in the price of diesel will have a cascading inflationary impact imposing greater burdens on the already suffering people. Agricultural sector and farmers will particularly suffer. The limiting of cooking gas cylinders will adversely impact on the livelihood condition of crores of families across the country. This UPA-2 government’s reasoning that such hikes are inevitable because of the `burgeoning losses’ of oil companies is a patent falsehood. The oil and natural gas giant, ONGC, declared a net profit of Rs 25,123 crore for the year 2011-12. For the next quarter ending June 30, 2012, it has reported a further growth in profit of 48.4 per cent. The IOC has reported a net profit of Rs 4,265.27 crore for 2011-12. The Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) reported a net profit of Rs 911 crore. Interestingly, for the last quarter of the fiscal, January-March 2012, its net profit increased by 312 per cent. The Bharat Petroleum has reported a net profit of Rs 1,546.68 crore. This UPA-2 government is thus committing a gigantic fraud on the Indian people. The CPI(M) calls upon all its units to organise strong protest actions against the imposition of such severe economic burdens. The CPI(M) calls upon all secular opposition forces to unite in protest to force the UPA-2 government to roll back this unreasonable hike in the prices of diesel and limiting cooking gas cylinders.




The stand adopted by allies of the Congress party in the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) has made it more than evident that a majority of the parliament members are opposed to the permission the government has granted for FDI in the multi-brand retail trade, the hike in the price of diesel and the decision to limit the supply of subsidised LPG cylinders to six per family per year. That is why the present government has no mandate and no right to implement the policy decisions it has announced.

TMC's 2009 election manifesto reveals Mamata's double standard on FDI - Daily Bhaskar 


New Delhi: In a major embarrassment to the Trinamool Congress and its chief Mamata Banerjee, party's election manifesto ahead of 2009 Lok Sabha polls had favoured the FDI in retail sector. 

In a section of the manifesto on party's website, “What the Trinamool Congress wants, at a glance,” point 42 on Page 81 reads: “The entry of large domestic and foreign capital in retail trade will occur.”

Significantly, one of the reasons behind Mamata's decision to pull out of the UPA-2 was the Union government's decision to go ahead with the Foreign Direct Investment in multi-brand retail. 

When asked about party's double standard on the issue, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee brushed it off as “a printing-mistake” in the manifesto.

However, in an attempt to prevent further embarrassment, the document was removed from the party’s official website on Friday evening.

Reacting to the manifesto controversy, Biman Bose, chairman of the State Left Front Committee and Pradip Bhattacharya, president of the West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee lambasted Mamata for her inconstant stand on the FDI issue.

Bose said that there was huge contradiction on Mamata's stand on the FDI issue, and the recent revelation has made it clear.

Stupa and Asoka Pillar, Vaishali, Bihar. Vaishali was a prosperous city which the Buddha visited a number of times. In the 3rd century BCE, Asoka is believed to have redistributed the holy relics of the Buddha. He enshrined them in many stupas across his empire, such as the one here - Frontline

Chaitya-Griha, Kushinagara, Uttar Pradesh. This commemorates the place where the Buddha achieved Parinirvana, that is, he left his mortal body and attained freedom from the cycle of birth and rebirth, in his eightieth year. This is another of the four holiest places for Buddhists. In the course of time, it was covered with sacred shrines and monasteries built by King Asoka and others - Frontline

Dhamek stupa, Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh. This stupa marks the spot where the Buddha gave his first sermon. The original stupa that stood here is believed to have been made in the 3rd century BCE. The present stupa is much larger than the original one and was probably made in the middle of the first millennium C.E. This is another of the four holiest places for Buddhists - Frontline

Shrine, Mahabodhi temple, Bodh Gaya, Bihar. The temple is built at the spot where the Buddha gained Enlightenment, near Gaya in Bihar. The present structure dates back to the mid-5th century C.E. Xuanzang, when he came to India in the 7th century, described Bodh Gaya as "the centre of the Buddhist world". One of the four holiest places for all Buddhists, it is on the UNESCO World Heritage List of Monuments- Frontline

Early Buddhism was founded on the Buddha’s sublime message of love and self-discipline. This philosophic vision of life found representation in mighty stupas, impressive gateways that stand before them, and great caves hewn out of rocks, which together form perhaps the greatest art ever created in the world.
