World Bank is not Indian Republic
Wolfensohn is not President of India
World Bank President James D. Wolfensohn's reported demand that
Maharashtra State Electricity Board must be privatised and that the
decision taken by Maharashtra Government on November 4 to break MSEB
into three corporations in order to satisfy Bank's conditionalites is
not enough is nothing but naked interference in the functioning of the
government by the plundering agency.
Mr. Wolfensohn cannot be unaware of the strong opposition of MSEB
workers and the labour movement in this country against the decision
of the government to trifurcate the board in particular and
privatisation in general.
Dismantling public sector is undoubtedly a pre-requisite for the Bank
to pave the way for the unbridled exploitation of national resources
by multi-national corporations like Enron. Hence the Bank's demand
for MSEB's privatisation.
TUSC deplores Mr. Wolfensohn's chastising of the Maharashtra
Government and his questioning the state government's right to give
subsidies to people. Wolfensohn is not the head of the Indian
Republic. He is only the President of a money lending agency.
Wolfensohn's remarks are anti-people. Shameful

Ceci est un média alternatif de publication ouverte. Le collectif CMAQ, qui gère la validation des contributions sur le Indymedia-Québec, n'endosse aucunement les propos et ne juge pas de la véracité des informations. Ce sont les commentaires des Internautes, comme vous, qui servent à évaluer la qualité de l'information. Nous avons néanmoins une Politique éditoriale , qui essentiellement demande que les contributions portent sur une question d'émancipation et ne proviennent pas de médias commerciaux.

This is an alternative media using open publishing. The CMAQ collective, who validates the posts submitted on the Indymedia-Quebec, does not endorse in any way the opinions and statements and does not judge if the information is correct or true. The quality of the information is evaluated by the comments from Internet surfers, like yourself. We nonetheless have an Editorial Policy , which essentially requires that posts be related to questions of emancipation and does not come from a commercial media.
