Large scale loss of jobs is already in evidence in a number of sectors. The reports of downsizing, cuts proposed in the wage is already seen. It is because of the strong presence of public sector in the economy, India had not been brutally assaulted.

'Left Will Vote Against Govt'
The Left parties will vote against the Manmohan Singh government in the vote of confidence because of its betrayal of national interests, asserted CPI(M) general secretary Prakash Karat. The Left will continue working to ensure that the India-US nuclear deal does not get operationalised during the tenure of this government. Charging the Congress of failing to check communal forces, he said the CPI(M) and Left parties will continue to combat the Hindutva and communal forces.
The recent fuel price hike by the government has drawn flak from the left parties, who have asked for a powerful stir against the decision, with a call for a general strike on this issue that hits the masses.
