District-level meetings being held; will go on for another two months

SANGAREDDY: The Communist Party of India-Marxist CPI (M), which has been silent on peoples’ issues for quite some time after facing serious drubbing the general elections, has decided to press into agitation mode from either in the month of November or December.

Keeping the prevailing political atmosphere in mind after the sudden demise of former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, the party has decided to use the transformation period to strengthen self as well as affiliated organisations.

As part of that district-level meetings are being held and this would go for another two months.

Disclosing the details to reporters, CPI(M) MLC Ch. Seetaramulu informed the media persons that the problems remained at the filed level and there was need to continue the fight with the spirit of freedom struggle taken up during the Nizam rule. However, he admitted that taking up agitations during the transformation period was not an easy task.

“The issues like allotment of three acres of land to the landless, house sites and completion of Indiramma Houses remained unaddressed. The amount is not being spent though the budget is being allotted to address the problems pertaining to the poor,” he said referring to the recommendations made by the Koneru Ranga Rao Committee.

He said that the committee had suggested distributing the surplus land to the poor and it was not implemented so far.

On the drought conditions, Mr. Seetaramulu said that there was a need to provide work for the agriculture labourers, extending financial assistance to the farming community, supplying seed and paying compensation for the crop loss.
