New Delhi, Nov 1 (UNI) The CPI today came down heavily on the Manmohan Singh government for its failure to contain the price rise, blatant violation of labour laws, the near crippling of the PDS and "dithering" on notifying the Tribals Rights Act among other things.

"We are also dismayed that the government is not taking steps to extend solidarity with the struggling people of Myanmar for restoration of demcoracy there," said CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan at a press conference.

At the end of the two-day party national Council deliberations, preceded by day-long national Executive, Mr Bardhan said while during the last one year alone, there had been 25 per cent increase in the price of vegetables and foodgrains, the farmers suicides also remained unabated in various parts of the country.

Mr Bardhan said his party would extend all possible support to the central trade unions who he said have organised a Rail Roko, Rasta Roko, jail Bharo and a countryside satyagraha on December 4 and 5 to register their protest against the anti people economic policies of the government.

On the unprecedented boom in the Stock market, the Left party demanded that the government effect a halt to this "senseless boom" and take urgent corrective measures to stabilise the market and prevent the accumulation of wealth by a handful at the cost of pauperization of the common people's hard earned savings.
