Right to Strike

Press Statement

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

In the context of certain remarks made by Comrade Buddhadeb Bhattacharya in a meeting of the Assocham in Kolkata, the Polit Bureau wishes to clarify the Party’s stand.

The CPI(M) firmly stands for the right to strike by the working class as a fundamental right. It has consistently supported the all-India general strikes of the trade unions against the neoliberal policies of the Central government and other urgent issues of the working class and toiling people.
