Maoists caused our govt fall: Raghavulu
Bhadrachalam: Communist Party of India (Marxist) Politburo Member B V Raghavulu said here on Saturday that the Marxist movement cannot be suppressed by murders of party leaders or their sympathisers. Addressing the 50th anniversary of the founding of CPI-M and the 29th anniversary of martyr Bangaru Chandra Rao, he said the Maoists were responsible for the defeat of the CPI-M government in West Bengal and the coming to power of the Trinamool Congress in 2011. Ironically, the TC government was killing Maoists in fake encounters.
Raghavulu said the party had never encouraged encounters against innocent people. The Maoists should realise that people were enjoying certain basic human rights in a democracy. The CPI-M leader assured the people that the party would always be in the forefront to fight for the rights of the poor.
He said Bhadrachalam lost heavily when the State was bifurcated. People in the submerged 130 villages were at a loss to know their status when transferred to Seemandhra. The governments of Telangana and AP should make sincere efforts to ensure that the tribals in these villages were not displaced.
Raghavulu suggested that local MLA Rajaiah be invited to the AP Assembly so that he could make a detailed representation of the problems being faced by people in the 130 villages. He demanded that the Telangana staff should be allowed to continue to work in the State. He alleged that both Chief Ministers KCR and N Chandrababu Naidu were colluding with big industrialists to deprive the poor farmers of their lands.
