The anti-people strike

The strike called by the various communist parties of India and supported by their trade unions shows that they are sore losers. The UPA government managed to “win” the trust vote even after Karat emptied his whole bag of tricks, the biggest one being the opportunistic alliance with Mayawati. They had been warning about a general strike from the time they withdrew their outside support to the government. And they have accomplished what they started out to do – paralyze the left-ruled states by bringing down the air and rail network in those areas. Leaving people stranded at railway stations is obviously a “pro-people” activity.

I can only repeat what Jawaharlal Nehru once said about the Communist Party of India (before it split into the pro-Russia and pro-China parties) and the strikes and violence resorted to by it to paralyze the country- “[The Indian Communist Party is] the most stupid party among the Communist parties of the world.”
