Report Adopted by the Polit Bureau at its Meeting held on June 2, 2020
My previous communications to you listing out various measures that the central government must undertake to alleviate the sufferings of a vast section of our people during the lockdown have gone unanswered. In fact they have not even been acknowledged, which is unusual.
At a time when the Kerala LDF Government has taken exemplary lead in the fight against Covid-19, along with providing the marginalized sections of societies including guest workers’ safety and succour, such a false story is motivated to denigrate the excellent work done by the government and the people of Kerala in fighting the pandemic.
The Polit Bureau meeting discussed the ways and means for sustaining and advancing the peaceful protest movement against the CAA-NPR-NRC all over the country. It called for the unity of all secular and democratic forces to carry forward the movement.
The grim reality of increasing burdens on people’s livelihood with the economic recession deepening is coming to the fore. This underlines the need for intensifying popular united struggles on people’s growing economic miseries.
