New Delhi, Aug 28 (UNI) A day after Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan described the remarks of his West Bengal counterpart against the right to strike as "wrong", the CPI(M) today said it firmly stood for the right to strike by working class as a "fundamental right".
Reacting to the anti-bandh comments made by Mr Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee in a meeting of business chamber Assocham in Kolkata, the politburo of the Marxist party said,''The CPI(M) firmly stands for the right to strike by the working class as a fundamental right.'' In a statement, the party said it has consistently supported the all-India general strikes of trade unions against the "neoliberal policies of the Central government" and other issues of the working class and toiling people.
Kerala Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan first expressed his doubt if his West Bengal counterpart had voiced such an opinion but then added "if he (Mr Bhattacharjee) had said so, then it's wrong".
