Centre used CBI to overcome cut motion: Bardhan

Thrissur: CPI general secretary A B Bardhan
has alleged that the Centre used CBI to overcome the cut
motion moved by Left parties against its policies in
Parliament.

The Congress-led UPA government succeeded in keeping the
small parties along with them by using the CBI as a weapon,
Bardhan said at a public meeting here Sunday night.

Referring to the spiralling food prices, he said the Union
government was not taking any steps to deal with black-
marketers and check forward trading of food grains.

The senior leader blamed Centre`s policy for the spurt in
prices.

Left parties would intensify its stir against the
Centre`s "anti-people" policies, he said.

Rising prices of essential commodities, growing
unemployment and corruption have made the common man`s life
miserable, he said.

Criticising the Food Security Act, Bardhan said the
proposal to supply 25 kg rice to below poverty line families
at Rs 3 per kg was a farce as it would cover only a
marginal population.
