The Communist Party of India-Marxist has dubbed the Rythu sadassulu being organised by the State government as an election trick. The sadassulu has no agenda that is beneficial to the farmers, it said.

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, CPI(M) state secretary B.V. Raghavulu said that the agricultural operations would commence in June if the monsoon predictions were to be considered. The government has, however, not chalked out any plans regarding supply of seeds and fertilisers.

The government has not given any clarity on agricultural loans as well. Though the government has promised interest free loans, it remained a distant dream for the farmers, he pointed out.

On tainted ministers, Mr. Raghavulu said that the Centre had no other option except to expel them. Had the Congress party been sincere on corruption-free governance, the tainted/corrupt ministers in the States where the Congress is in power would have been ousted long back. The statements on autonomy to CBI and ousting the corrupt ministers were a political compulsion, he said.

Mr. Raghavulu said that there was no political stability and governance has utterly failed in the State. The Congress government has been dilly-dallying on division of the State. Corruption was ruling the roost. Development has come to a grinding halt.

The government made tall claims on the new system to conduct the Assembly proceedings and budget. But, the Assembly session has not been convened. Is Assembly there, he asked.

On party programmes, the CPI(M) leader said that the party would take up agitation in the last week of May demanding the government to resolve the land and residential land issues.

The CPI(M) workers and people would lay siege to the government offices.
