At a gathering at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A), [the DL] said: “I am a Marxist monk, a Buddhist Marxist. I belong to the Marxist camp, because unlike capitalism, Marxism is more ethical. Marxism, as an ideology, takes care of the welfare of its employees and believes in distribution of wealth among the people of the state.”
Communist China, the DL says, has a high degree of exploitation among its workers.
