CPM calls for unity in opposing FDI

Last Updated 27 November 2011, 19:34 IST

“We appeal to all political parties, irrespective of ideology, to unite under one umbrella in opposing the entry of FDI in the retail sector, because this will deal a blow to 96 per cent of traders in the country,” CPM Central Committee member Shyamal Chak­rabo­rty said.
Observing that even some UPA constituents were opp­os­ed to the entry of FDI in retail, Chakraborty said, “We hear even some Congress min­isters at the Centre are opposed to it. This is a good indication.” Chakraborty said the CPM and its trade union wing CI­TU will support the nation-wi­de traders’ strike on December 1.
