Bangalore: Kerala Chief Minister V S
Achuthanandan today slammed the economic policies of
globalisation and alleged that it promoted "use and throw"
labour hiring culture in industries and IT sector.
Speaking after inaugurating `EMS Bhavan` here, he noted
that Bangalore had a large number of industrial labourers and
IT employees, and said "the economic policies of globalisation
will have a greater influence here."
"The new economic policies had cultivated a use and throw
culture, instead of a permanency in job and incentives", he
"Hope, by campaigning against the newer kind of
exploitations, the influence and scope of the leftist
progressive movements may be strengthened", Achuthanandan
The EMS Bhavan, declared open on the 101st birth
anniversary of Kerala`s first Communist Chief Minister, late E
M S Namboodiripad, was built by A K Gopalan Memorial Social

agriculture labourers and the downtrodden.

Minister and JDS chief H D Deve Gowda.
