Corporates have captured govt: CPI

“There is hardly any difference between the BJP and Congress. Both of them root for the same economic policies and compete with each other in indulging in corruption and granting favours to corporates,” said senior CPI leader and MP Gurudas Dasgupta.

Talking to the media here on Wednesday to give a briefing on the 40th National Conference of All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) scheduled to be held for three days in Mumbai starting November 27, Dasgupta said : “The government has been captured by corporates.

The governance has come to the nadir. What can one say for a government which has almost every minister and relatives of politicians queueing up in front of jails and corruption enquiries?

“And it is not just the Congress, even the BJP is not far behind. The party is steeped in corruption in Karnataka. In Gujarat, the government grants Rs 9,000 crore to a corporate body with a 20-year moratorium. The interest after the period would be 1 per cent. It is precisely because of this that every trade union would be striking work on the eve of the Union Budget, for the first time in the history of independent India.”

He said that trade unions across the country cutting across ideological lines, will march towards Parliament on December 20 to protest against the anti-people policies pursued by the government.
