Coimbatore, Apr 1 (UNI) The CPI(M) today rejected the slew of measures announced by the Centre to curb spiralling prices of essential commodities, stating that they would not be frutiful.
Briefing newspersons on the fourth day deliberations of the 19th CPI(M) Congress here, Party Polit Bureau member S Ramachandaran Pillai rptg S Ramachandran Pillai said the measures announced by the Congress-led UPA Government would not be fruitful to contain the price rise.
Accusing the UPA Government of not taking any concrete steps to contain the rising prices of essential commodities, he said the Government should have changed the tax structure on petroleum products, introduced Universal Public Distribution System and launched stern de-hoarding measures.
The CPI(M) had been suggesting these measures to bring down prices, but the UPA Government had turned a blind eye to it, he added.
