Senior CPM MP Brinda Karat alleged that workers in the country were at receiving end due to Centre's anti-labour policies and promotion of multi-national firms.

"UPA government at the Centre is adopting anti-labourer policy and promoting multi-national companies giving rise to unemployment and workers problems," Karat told an election rally at Satpur near here last night.

Republican-Left Democratic Front has fielded Dr D L Karad from this assembly constituency for Maharashtra Assembly polls scheduled to be held October 13.

Earlier, in an interaction with newspersons, she said that Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has challenged Constitution by opposing North Indians' presence in the state.

Karat, also a politburo member of CPM, alleged Congress-NCP alliance of supporting MNS to dent Sena-BJP votes.

The Congress-NCP government in the state has failed to keep the promises it made during last assembly polls, she alleged.

The government failed on all the fronts, including farmers suicide and subsidy schemes to benefit workers, Karat said.
