Kolkata protests against Obama visit

Staff Reporter



“WE PROTEST”: CPI (M) activists demonstrating in Kolkata on Monday.

KOLKATA: Even as U.S. President Barack Obama delivered his address to Parliament in New Delhi on Monday, Left Front supporters took to the streets here protesting against “imperialist policies” of the Obama Administration.

The protesters were equally critical of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, “who has not expressed any concern over the jobs that will be lost as a result of the curbs on outsourcing in the U.S. even as 50,000 jobs are being created for Americans in deals with India”.

“While President Barack Obama is a patriot and protecting American interests, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is far more concerned about the interests of the American people than those of his country,” charged Manabendra Mukherjee, senior CPI (M) leader and West Bengal Minister for Tourism.

People of India want the extradition of suspected terrorist David Headley and former Union Carbide chairman Warren Anderson, Mr. Mukherjee said. “We are not opposed to Mr. Obama. In fact the world had many expectations of restoring peace when he was elected the U.S. President, but he has not lived up to those hopes and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan continue,” Mr. Mukherjee said.
