Kochi, Jan 9 (ANI): CPI (M) politburo member Sitaram Yechury has demanded the Government’’s intervention to protect the 53,000 employees of the Satyam Computers after the company’’s chairman Ramalinga Raju resigned admitting false profits shown over the years.
“We want the Government to take measures to ensure that the 53,000 odd people working in Satyam, that they are not made to suffer as a result of this and in the light of the global meltdown, in the light of exposure of various scams by various global financial insinuations that are now coming out,” Yechury said at the three-day central committee meeting of the CPI (M) on Thursday.
“The Government will have to take immediately measures to put in proper regulatory mechanisms. This will have to be taken up, but first thing is to proceed with prosecution of CEO of Satyam,” added Yechury.
Further, Yechury mentioned about the offensive unleashed by Israel on Palestine in the Gaza region.
On this score, he demanded that the Indian Government should suspend all military ties with Israel if it really wants to show its concern for the Palestinians.
“India today has a very large military trade with Israel and India has launched and is going to launch more of Isreali spy satellites. Unless this programme is suspended immediately, the Prime Minister’’s assurance has no meaning. So we want the Prime Minister to follow up his own statement by immediately suspending all military contacts with Israel. Unless this is done, India will be continued to be seen as an ally of Israel,” said Yechury.
Reportedly, about 530 Palestinians have been killed among whom at least a quarter happen to be civilians, since Israel launched its offensive on December 27 to curtail Hamas rocket attacks on its territory from Gaza. (ANI)
