KOCHI: Veteran CPM leader M M Lawrence said the Centre’s decision to privatise the defence sector, including the repair work of Navy battleships, is suicidal for national security and it would result in looting the public treasury.

He was speaking while inaugurating the 40th annual meeting of the Kochi Naval Base Civilian Workers Union held the other day.

He accused the Modi Government of issuing policies that violated the public interests and of trying to keep up his reign by causing division amidst the people by deploying religious forces. “The Modi Government failed to find solution to even a single problem faced by the common people for the past four years,” he alleged. Former Corporation councillor M Anilkumar, K Balakrishnan, and Josy K Chirappuram also attended the function. The meeting also selected new coordinators of the Union.  

M M Lawrence (President), M Anilkumar (General Secretary), Josy K Chirappuram (Secretary), I D Joseph (Treasurer), K Jayachandran Nair, V Bijukumar and V Unnikrishnan (Vice-President), K D Babu, P V Paulose and K K Anilkumar (Joint secretary), S Pradeep , M C Gopi, Selvaraj (Asst Secretary), T S Suresh, K R Siju and E J Coleman (Org Secretary) and Jeslin Antony (Office Secretary) .
