CPM calls for unity in opposing FDI

“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.
