Maha polls: Karat accuses Cong-NCP of supporting MNS

October 05, 2009 17:30 IST

Communist Party of India-Marxist Member of Parliament Brinda Karat said workers in the country are at receiving end of the centre's anti-labour policies and the promotion of multinational firms.

"The United Progressive Alliance government is adopting an anti-labourer policy and promoting multinational companies giving rise to unemployment and worker problems," Karat told an election rally at Satpur near in Nashik on Sunday night.

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

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

Karat, also a politburo member of CPI-M, alleged that the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party alliance is supporting the MNS to dent the Shiv Sena-Bharatiya Janata Party votes.

The Congress-NCP government failed to keep the promises it made during the last assembly polls, she said.

The government failed on the front of farmers suicide and subsidy schemes to benefit workers, Karat said.
