Vikarabad: In spite of the difference of opinions with the Communist Party of India, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) had no objection to join hands with that party to fight the forthcoming elections, B V Raghavulu, CPM state general secretary said here on Sunday.
Addressing newsmen at the R&B Guesthouse, the senior CPM leader recalled that the CPM and CPI jointly contested elections in 2004 and 2009. Expressing concern over the state of affairs in the State, he said that the chief minister and the ministers were not handling the administration but only enjoying their positions.
He said that Phailin had played havoc in Srikakulam and crops were severely damaged and on the other hand people were suffering due to fevers like Dengue but the government was not responding. The CPM leader said that the students have lost an academic year due to the negligence of the government. The children of Dalits, Girijans and weaker-sections were the worst hit due to the apathy of the government in running the schools, he added. The promise to appoint 70,000 vidya volunteers was not fulfilled and the 25,000 teacher posts were yet to be filled, he remarked.
He demanded immediate action regarding the education and public distribution system in the state. Whether the state remained united or divided, the problems of the people would remain unsolved, he rued. He lambasted the government for inaction on various fronts and said that the ministers were not attending the secretariat and files were languishing in the CMO.
Referring to the promise by Minister for Textiles Prasad Kumar to establish a textile park at Vikarabad, he wondered as to how he would fulfill his promise under the present conditions.
MLC Dr K Nageswar, CPM leaders Miriyam Venkateswarlu, DG Narasimha Rao, district rural committee secretary G Narsimulu, division secretary Mallesham and others were present.
