CPI opposes move to hand over oilfields to private parties

By Correspondent

SIVASAGAR, May 21 - The Communist Party of India (CPI), Sivasagar district unit, severely criticised the BJP-led government for handing over 49 oilfields to private parties.

In a press release issued here, the party�s district council secretary Kanak Gogoi said that the privatisation move of the Centre is absolutely against the interest of the nation. �We think this is a ploy of the BJP to privatise the profit-making PSUs and the CPI will oppose it tooth and nail,� he said.

The CPI held a sit-in demonstration in front of its Nazira office in protest against the privatisation of the Navaratna PSU, besides demanding adequate protection measures for the stranded and exploited working class.

The party demanded that every stranded worker must be brought back free of cost and paid a relief of Rs 10,000 each. The party demanded a high-level investigation into alleged anomalies into PM Kisan Samman Nidhi beneficiaries, and release of all anti-CAA protesters who are now in different jails.

Condemning the privatisation, INTUC secretary Purnakanta Buragohain said the Central government is working towards shifting the oil industry away from the crude production fields in the district in a phased manner by transferring high-yielding fields like Demual, Panidihing, Desunmukh, Naharhabi, Suffry, Changmaigaon to private companies.

INTUC has been protesting against the privatisation move and will continue to do this in future, he said.

Niranjan Chetia, general secretary of the Sivasagar district council of the CPI (M), said all democratic people should come out against the move of the Centre.

Mihir Bharali, adviser for the Centre for Trade Unions, said the BJP government is controlled by the capitalist lobby and hence it is bent on privatising everything in India.

Muhi Baruah of AITUC said that the Left and democratic forces have long been opposing the General Agreement of Tariff and Trade (GATT) and the policy of rolling out the red carpet to the anti-people capitalists will ruin the country.

Meanwhile, Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad, Basanta Gogoi of All Tai Ahom Students� Union, MI Bora, executive president of the Ujoni Asom Muslim Kalyan Parishad, Sivasagar district committee, and several other organisations also flayed the decision of the Central government.
