BHUBANESWAR:The State council of Communist Party of India on Sunday extended its support to the call given by Left parties to observe July 20 as anti-corruption day.

A meeting of the council chaired by CPI’s national secretary K Narayana criticised the anti-labour and anti-farmer policies of Narendra Modi Government at Centre.

The meeting decided to actively support the proposed nationwide agitation by national trade unions on September 2 to protest land Acquisition Act of the Centre.

The meeting strongly opposed the Odisha Land Grabbing Prohibition Ordinance saying this is an attempt to evict poor landless people who are residing in Government land. While a large number of BJD supporters has occupied Government land unauthorisedly, the ordinance is an instrument to dislodge the slum dwellers, said State CPI secretary Dibakar Nayak.

The meeting condemned the manner in which the statue of Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das was removed outside the Jagannath temple and the party demanded the Government to apologise for this unpardonable act.

Six Left parties have decided to organise anti-corruption rally in the country and observe July 20 as Anti-corruption Day.
