Few years back when the Communists were in power in Kerala, they sanctioned a Pepsi bottling plant. Now the Communist controlled panchayat has decided to cancel the licence. The official party policy is to boycott multinational goods in protest against the Iraq war. But all Pepsi bottling plants in West Bengal are running fine. No one is shutting them down.
“Kerala govt to provide legal protection to Pepsi”:http://www.keralanext.com/news/index.asp?id=10766
bq. In West Bengal, there were three Pepsi units and two Coca-Cola units. CPI-M was boycotting the products of these companies in the state while allowing the companies in West Bengal, he said, adding CPI-M’s “attitude was against the development of the state.”
The comrades in Bengal are currently “busy killing people”:http://varnam.nationalinterest.in/archives/000097.html. So time cannot be wasted on implementing stupid official policies.
