Thus, the present government has initiated the process of privatisation of another 50 public sector companies.Continue reading

Capitalist reforms cannot be implemented with a human face
The discrediting of CPI(M) rule is an inevitable result of following the path of managing the bourgeois state for more than thirty years.
