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

The Central Government has officially announced the sale of India.

The National Monetisation Pipeline (NMP) released by the Finance Minister yesterday, details the loot of our national assets and infrastructure. This is an outright plunder of people’s wealth.

Selling family silver to meet daily expenditure makes neither economic nor common sense. Selling assets for a song when the markets are low benefits only crony corporates and promotes crony capitalism.

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) calls upon the people of India to protest against and resist this loot of our national assets.
