CPI criticises UPA regime's economic policies
Hyderabad, July 7: Communist Party of India (CPI) national council secretary shami Faizi today said the council vehemently criticised the UPA Government's economic policies in the meeting.
Talking to newspersons here, he said CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan had raised the UPA Government's policy of disinvestment of profit making PSUs, failure to control price rise and the agrarian crisis that led to farmers committing suicides.
Mr Faizi also alleged that steps like liberalisation of financial sector, privatisation of banks and insurance would be on the negative side.
Stating that the council also severely criticised the pro-US drift in the foreign policy of the country, he said the Council made attempts against forging strategic alliance with the US and deplored the vote against Iran in IAEA under US pressure.
The council had also proposed electoral tactics for the forthcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Punjab and Manipur. It reiterated firm support to the proposed 27 per cent reservation for OBCs in higher educational institues, he added.
