Left parties to organise ‘chalo Hyderabad’ on October 10

The Left parties criticised Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy-led Congress government for lying in a state of “coma” ever since the Congress Working Committee announced its decision in favour of separate Telangana State.

CPI State secretary K. Narayana and his CPI (M) counterpart B.V. Raghavulu expressed concern over problems being faced on an unprecedented scale following the virtual collapse of the public distribution system and pensions meant for the poor not reaching the beneficiaries ever since the agitation commenced in the Seemandhra region. “There is no government in the State. The Chief Minister is frequently speaking against the party high command instead of focussing on the issues of public importance,” Dr. Narayana said.

The Left parties – CPI, CPI (M), All India Forward Bloc and Revolutionary Socialist Party – will organise a ‘chalo Hyderabad’ public meeting on October 10 to highlight the sufferings faced by the common man.

The meeting would be addressed by senior leaders including Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, Sitaram Yechury, Abani Roy and Debabrata Biswas.

Mr. Raghavulu and Dr. Narayana accused the Congress-led UPA government of failing on all fronts. The Left parties had therefore decided to highlight a non-Congress and non-BJP economic, social and political alternative that would be kicked off by the meeting in the State capital.
