CPM demands PM statement

delhi Updated: Jun 15, 2011 23:56 IST

The CPM demanded a statement from the Prime Minister in light of the CAG report, which, according to the Left party, nails the “connivance between the government agencies and RIL.”

In bid to corner PM Manmohan Singh, the Politburo said the PM’s silence on the issue has again exposed the UPA government’s “acquiescence to corporate manipulation.”

“The Politburo demands a statement from the PM on this issue as it involves a higher price for energy resource and has a direct bearing on the interests of the common man”, the statement said.

The party maintained that government’s connivance with RIL has a direct impact on the aam aadmi because “increased claims of development cost get reflected in the price of gas given to consumers” besides affecting the “prices of fertiliser and power.”
