Protest Against Modi Govt’s Union Budget

Activists of CPI(ML) held a protest demonstration at Jantar Mantar on July 11th against the pro-corporate, anti-people Union Budget, and burnt an effigy of the Budget.

Protesters raised slogans saying that the Modi Budget had bought ‘good times’ (acche din) for corporations through the FDI, PPP and exemptions route, but for the vast majority of ordinary people, there was only price rise, unemployment, and suffering in the absence of basic rights like health, education, food and water.

The protest was addressed by CPI(ML) State Secretary Sanjay Sharma, Politburo member Kavita Krishnan, RYA GS Ravi Rai, AICCTU leaders Rajiv Dimri, VKS Gautam and Santosh Roy and others.
