Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist)
Covid-19 Pandemic and Crisis of Capitalism
As Covid-19 is spreading rapidly across the globe, it constitutes the most urgent and serious challenge to both the health of humanity and world peace and development.
The CPI (ML) pays its tributes to all the people, health workers in particular, who devote themselves to saving lives and protecting people’s health. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to those who are suffering from Covid-19 infection as well as the bereaved families of those deceased. We also express our deep mourning for the loss of lives in the pandemic.
Millions of migrant workers, separated from their families and livelihoods, have to bear untold miseries. They came to metro cities in search of jobs and leading a wretched life. All of a sudden they find themselves as unwanted entitles. These workers are prepared to go back to their far flung villages walking all the way along with their families. They had to face barricades at every inter-district and inter-state border. They were made to wait for days here without food and shelter. When these unbearable conditions made them to proceed forward, they had faced brutal repression, frequent resort by the failed ruler.
CPI (ML) once again calls upon the people to comply with prevention and mitigation measures as advised by the scientists with a due sense of social responsibility.
