The CPI manifesto for Telangana emphasises on inclusive growth in Telangana and promises to take up issues like completion of all pending irrigation projects, setting up of power plants, employment generation etc.
Releasing the manifesto on Thursday, state secretary K Narayana said that the CPI would strive to see that apart from putting pressure on the government for speedy completion of irrigation projects, it would take up farmers’ issues.
CPI will insist on implementation of Swaminathan Committee report so that the farmers would be assured of minimum support price for their produce. It also demands a comprehensive loan waiver scheme and identity cards for tenant farmers. The Left party has demanded the government to take over Nizam Sugar Factory as thousands of farmers and workers had suffered great losses due to the policies of the previous governments.
The manifesto strongly opposes attempts to privatise transport, Singareni Collieries and also electricity, education and health sectors. It demands regularisation of services of contract and outsourced employees of the APSRTC. It also assures to fight for implementation of minimum wage of Rs 12,500 per month for workers as per the international norms.
The party vowed to strive for establishment of special machinery for implementing budget, welfare schemes and sub-plan for minorities. The other welfare measures listed by the party are distribution of one hectare of agricultural land per family, Rs 2 lakh along with site for construction of a house for Dalits. Narayana said the CPI would also stand by the tribals who have lost lands on account of irrigation projects. He said the party will demand a job for each of the displaced families and Rs 10 lakh compensation per acre.
The party has demanded that the government set up a development fund of Rs 10,000 crore for Muslims. It also emphasised on providing a reservation of 5 per cent for uplift of the community and implementation of Sachar and Ranganath Mishra Committee reports. Referring to a proposal of National Minority Commission, Narayana said the party would seek 25 per cent reservation to members of minority community in security forces. Establishment of special commissionerate for protecting Wakf lands is among the other issues mentioned in the manifesto.
