Howrah, Nov 1 (UNI) CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat today said steps will be taken to rejuvenate and reform the party so that it can withstand the pressure of globalisation and privatisation.
Speaking at the CPI(M) district party office here, Mr Karat told newspersons that the party will undergo certain reforms, steps for which will be discussed in the coming party congress slated for March next in Tamil Nadu.
''America's policy of globalisation should be opposed at all cost and our country's foreign and economic policy should be reformed in such a manner that it does not render further support to their policy,'' he said and added that ''in the name of liberalisation India has given away lot of its own resources''.
Mr Prakash also maintained that all public sectors in India, including education and banking, would have been totally privatised, if not for the opposition by the Left Front.
''India has immense natural resources, which if utilised can take the country to greater heights,'' he reiterated.
