CPI functionaries will conduct a door-to-door survey in Kadapa from August 1 to 5 to enlist the number of poor families awaiting sanction of house sites and will stage ‘Chalo Collectorate’ protest from August 7 to 10, its district secretary G. Easwaraiah said on Sunday.
Addressing the CPI city council meeting here, he called upon partymen to gear up for the ensuing municipal elections. The Congress failed to resolve the problems of the poorer sections despite showering promises in Pallebaata, Nagarabaata, Indiramma, Rachchabanda and Praja Vani, Mr. Easwaraiah alleged. The ruling party leaders and officials are cooperating with a DKT mafia in Kadapa city, he alleged.
Several works sanctioned to develop backward areas were siphoned by Ministers, he alleged. Property tax, water tax and service tax are being levied on a par with major cities such as Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam, but no efforts are being made to develop them, he alleged.
Most internal cement roads in the city are dug up for underground drainage system leaving trenches in the midst of the roads.
New roads are not being laid, he alleged.
Lack of sanitation is leading to mosquito menace and outbreak of viral fever, dengue, malaria and chikungunya and those affected have to rush to hospitals in neighbouring districts, he said.
CPI city secretary G. Chandra and leaders G. Venugopal, N. Venkatasiva, A. Nagaraju, D.C. Venkataiah, Vijayalakshmi and Obulesu participated.
