Withdraw the Draconian Essential Defence Services Ordinance, 2021
The Polit Bureau strongly condemns the promulgation of this ordinance, which aims to prohibit the working class and employees of the ordnance factories to organise legitimate protests against the outright sale of India’s national assets to facilitate profit-maximisation of corporate cronies. The 41 ordnance factories are being converted into 7 corporations. The Modi government has announced that only 4 public sector units will remain in this strategic sector. This is unacceptable. The protests against this naked loot of our national assets will intensify.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) demands that this ordinance be withdrawn forthwith.
