Khammam: Senior CPI leader and former MLA Puvvada Nageswara Rao on Sunday hit out at the BJP and the TRS governments for adopting ‘anti-people’ policies.
Speaking at the party's first Municipal Corporation level ‘mahasabha’ here, he faulted the BJP and its frontal organisations for describing Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse as a 'patriot'. "The TRS government, including Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and Home Minister Naini Narasimha Reddy, were praising the Nizam's rule," Rao said, questioning the democratic and moral values of the party. He alleged that both the Centre and TRS governments have been protecting the interests of the corporate sector.
"It's apparent that the Narendra Modi Government was trying to push massive privatisation in the name of reforms while going soft on willful defaulters,"Rao said. It would pave way for the exploitation of labour. Stating that KCR was behaving like a ‘dictator’, party State leader Siddhi Venkateswarlu said no section of society was happy with his governance. There was resentment among students, farmers and marginalised sections. Farmers were felling cheated as their loans were not waived and they couldn't get fresh loans. Assurances given to SCs, STs and minorities remained just on paper."The TRS government failed to infuse confidence among farmers. As a result their suicides are continuing," he said, demanding Rs 10 lakh ex-gratia each to families of each suicide victim.
State Secretariat member Kunamneni Sambasiva Rao said: "The rich have become richer, and the poor have become poorer, due to the indifferent approach of rulers."
Khammam district CPI secretary Bagam Hemanth Rao, leaders Chamakuri Venkanna, Somojula Sarojini, Yanali Sambasiva Reddy and S.K. Shariff were present.
