The CPI(M), as a prelude to maha dharna, organised padayatras in about 50 divisions in the city. The party also organised group meetings in every division to create awareness among the public.

The city unit of Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI(M) will stage a ‘maha dharna’ (a massive sit-in protest) in front of the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation office on Friday. The ‘maha dharna’ is being organised to register protest against ‘negligence’ of the city by the State Government. CPI(M) floor leader in State Assembly Julakanti Ranga Reddy would address the gathering, according to CPI(M) city secretary Ch. Babu Rao.

The CPI(M), as a prelude to maha dharna, organised padayatras in about 50 divisions in the city. The party also organised group meetings in every division to create awareness among the public. The CPI(M) received many petitions from the people on various problems faced by them. The petitions would be submitted to the municipal commissioner at the dharna, he said.

The ‘shortsightedness’ of officials and ruling Congress party pushed the corporation into doldrums. The Congress leaders painted a rosy picture about the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) programme and city development.

In reality, it became a curse to the city. Hardly 35 to 50 per cent works were completed though the programme came to an end, he said.
