AGARTALA, Nov 24 (TIWN): Whereas on Thursday, CPI-M has called Modi as ‘Inhuman’ for making public to suffer, on the other hand CPI-M has called for 12 hours strike on Nov 28, which falls on a working day i.e. next Monday, in a press meet CPI-M State Chairman Khagen Das announced about the strike. Supporting the Anti-Modi parties Das said CPI-Ms will continue their protests and along with the whole nation state will also observe ‘Akrosh Day’. However, as CPI-M in power here, so overusing its power the party has decided to go for strike. Resentment already brewed among the masses as the strike will be held on Monday and as Sunday will be holiday so automatically the cash crisis will increase here & that’s what CPI-M wants. Referring to the opposition-sponsored November 28 "Akrosh Divas", he said, "A powerful protest must be mounted to give a befitting response to the inhuman Modi regime."At Rajya Sabha, the CPI-M has described the Modi government as "inhuman" for being blind "to the agonies and sufferings of the people" in the wake of a massive cash chaos caused by demonetisation.

"The 'cash war' declared by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Indian people is exacting a heavy toll on the people," an editorial in the CPI-M journal "People's Democracy" said. "Scores of people, men, women and children have died as a result of the misery inflicted by the withdrawal of 1,000 and 500 rupee notes," it said."Till November 22, more than 75 deaths have been reported across the country and the number keeps mounting." It said these stories of distress and tragedy were part of the overall crisis which has hit the working people "who have lost their livelihood, meagre savings and face starvation". 

The editorial blasted the BJP for not expressing a word of sorrow or regret for the people who had to die standing in queues. "Here is a Prime Minister and the ruling party that is drunk with the arrogance of power, which has blinded them to the agonies and sufferings of the people. 

However, CPI-M on Nov 13 proposed to bring an adjournment motion in Parliament with regard to demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and introduction of the new Rs 2,000 note by the Union government and with that CPI-M hit parliament with 200 people there.

 "We propose to bring an adjournment motion in Parliament on demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and introduction of Rs 2,000 rupee note by the Centre," CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said.

The politics of the country now turning into a bad shape as it has planed to defeat each other, and let the people die. Obviously in the crisis time, CPI-M’s strike is the exact example of it.
