Abolish TTD board, says Narayana

Correspondent

MAHABUBNAGAR: Communist Party of India (CPI) State secretary K. Narayana demanded abolition of TTD governing body with immediate effect and an enquiry by a High Court sitting judge on the allegations and irregularities in the Devastanam.

Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday, he said that increase in the prices of essential commodities was due to the large scale hoarding of essential commodities by businessmen. He said that government had failed to contain the hoarding of essential commodities. Instead of booking non-bailable cases against the hoarders, the government was foisting cases of dacoity against the CPI workers who were conducting raids.

Mr. Narayana said that Assembly sessions were conducted as PCC meetings and the Chief Minister was behaving in an undemocratic manner by insulting opposition parties. He accused the government of failing to obtain its share in K-G basin gas. Mr. Narayana alleged that Chief Minister lacked will to get drought funds from the Centre. The Chief Minister should use his good offices and pass a resolution by which the State could get Rs.10,000 crore to combat the drought situation.

Later addressing party works, he exhorted them to launch struggles against anti-people policies of the government. He alleged great injustice to Mahabubnagar district in the allocation of Krishna water.
