The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) on Thursday accused the central government of weakening state-run general insurance companies through disinvestment, which it said is "not in the country's interest".
The Communist Party of India (CPI) is a national political party in India. In the Indian communist movement, there are different views on exactly when the Indian communist party was founded. The date maintained as the foundation day by CPI is 26 December 1925. But the Communist Party of India (Marxist), which split-off from the CPI, claims that the party was founded in 1920.
