Seeking to set a people-centric agenda for the new State government ahead of the budget session, the Communist Party of India held demonstrations across the State on Monday.

In memorandums submitted to Deputy Commissioners of various districts, the CPI and its affiliated organisations demanded that the Government take steps for the welfare of farmers, workers and poor people.

“The only change that has occurred in the State is a change in government, but there’s been no change in policies for people. This government is also functioning like the previous one,” said M.D. Harigovinda, Bangalore District Secretary, Communist party of India (CPI), at one such demonstration here.

He said that the government discussed proposals just with the bureaucrats and the common people’s concern is never considered.

“We want to have a discussion with the Chief Minister before the budget session so that we can bring our demands to his notice,” he added.

“The people should be aware of our demands and that is why we are staging this demonstration,” said Deepak M., Bangalore district unit president, All India Trade Union Congress, and also member of CPI.
