The CPM on Monday criticised the Congress-led UDF government for inviting US Ambassador Nancy J Powell to participate in investment meet ‘Emerging Kerala’ slated to begin on Wednesday in Kochi.

Party state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan told the media here that it was the first time a US ambassador would participate in an official function of the Kerala government. “That shows the US is eyeing the state’s wealth.” He said the CPM would not allow the capitalistic forces to plunder the public wealth. The state would witness massive protest against such moves which would only further the interest of the real estate mafia,he said.
