10 Million jobs lost, UPA not doing enough: Buddhadeb
Kolkata: Claiming that nearly 10 million jobs have been lost in the country due to the global slowdown, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has flayed the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government for neglecting the interests of the common man in its response to the economic crisis.

"The centre's policy is not enough for the common people. By the stimulus packages they are trying to keep the big corporates in good health. But they are not doing anything towards mitigating the sufferings of the laid off common man," Bhattacharjee said in an interview to a news channel here late Friday.

He said total 10 million jobs have been lost in India - both in the organised and unorganised sectors - till date due to the economic slowdown.

"The centre should concentrate on generating more employment at this time," he maintained.

He blamed the liberalisation policy of the central government for the economic distress in the country.

"Thankfully we (the Communist party of India-Marxist) didn't allow foreign tie-ups in banks and insurance. Otherwise they would have faced a similar fate as the other affected sectors," Bhattacharjee contended.

The Communist were not able to save the Nano project for West Bengal, leading to a loss of thousands of jobs for the state. They are not worthy to comment on anyone else.
