The question comes to my mind why a wall mart like company is opposed in India. What this retail corporate will do harm to the Indian market? Any company takes time to popularise its brand value besides setting its own house in order. Indian opposition is up in arms why Dr Monmohan Singh sold out his country by inviting an US retailer on Indian soil. How a country of 110 million people could be sold out just by inviting a retail outlet could not be understood.

I already wrote about Chinese 3rd graded commodities smuggled into the Indian retail market and Indian consumers are regularly cheated. But Chinese whole sellers through Indian retailers are making trillions of dollars. India in sixties experienced how 'Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai' (India China are brothers) boomeranged and India lost Tibet. Still Tibetan people in hundred and thousands are dying in Chinese occupation. They became refugees in their home land. India is their safe destination because of its spiritual and political culture. These Chinese know nothing but making money even selling gun machines to Taliban and Al-quieda. They are using Pakistan and Bangladeshi islamists demons to disturb India and the country is suffering in a regular course.
Chinese political friends in Indian opposition particularly CPIM are out to condemn Dr. Singh for Wall mart entry. Everywhere  money ultimately matters whether one supports or opposes. Yet CPIM's political enemy TMC, a Mamata Bannerjee led party now ruling West Bengal is also vehemently opposing Wall mart entry. Its because TMC will not allow CPIM to steal the show to regain political ground.  Here again politics of convenience rules the show and not really the interest of the people.

Venezuela has seen a new dawn with the victory of its popular leader to the post of President of the country. The election has never been rigged and no unfair means were necessitated by the ruling party to win the election. It was a popular mandate against American imperialism and its stooges. The ruling left in that country never encouraged entry of Walmart like retail giant or any other MNCs dealing frauds in the name of Insurance and others. Yet the oil reached nation has able to resist the greedy American oil lobby and never allowed the country to become Kuwait or Iraq. Venezuela is not a safe destination for the US marines or NATO operatives. The country is waging a lone battle in a multi polar world divided over looting wealth of the poor nations and in absence of any socialist block of nations. Its now the first sun of the oppressed people to rise from the hill tops of Venezuela.

Pseudo Left

Now the left is blaming Mamata of being a pseudo left. Mamata has hijacked demands of left include Marxists. No to FDI in retail chain, no diesel/ petrol/ rail fare hike. Bring back those black money piled in Swiss & other foreign banks. 

The fact remains the Bengal communists are a lot of liar and hypocrite. They masterminded in bringing a German retailer to Calcutta and cleared proposals for Ambanies to open similar shops in the city by evicting local retailers in a busy market. 

In each and every time, the government of Bengal left raised bus/taxi fares with the revision of prices of diesel and petrol and never curbed illegal hoarding of essential commodities in the state of Bengal made the suffering people no where to go. Yet they talk of opposing the Center's move and warned people of the '"pseudo left in Mamata & her party ruling the state of Bengal". They do not have any introspection.  They are not ready to take lesson from the past.
