Bhopal, Oct 24 (IANS) Accusing the central government of following anti-people policies, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Tuesday warned the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government not to take its support for granted.

Addressing a press conference here, CPI-M politburo member M.K. Pandhe said that the UPA's policies had led to unemployment and thus given rise to terrorism and anti-social activities.

'The government is not giving due importance to our suggestions and this is why we have chosen to initiate public campaigns against its wrong economic policies. We want the government to amend its economic policies or it will have to face the music,' Pandhe said.

CPI-M leads the Left parties that support Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's government from outside.

Queried if it would withdraw support, Pandhe said, 'This will be decided by the party.

'The support was extended in view of the promises made in the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) but unfortunately the Congress (which leads the UPA) was paying little attention to it,' the communist leader said.

Pandhe also announced plans to launch a nationwide campaign against any foreign direct investment (FDI) in the retail sector. 'This will render small traders jobless,' he said.

He arrived here Tuesday evening to attend a two-day state party committee meeting slated to start Wednesday.
