`Congress has failed people'

By Our Correspondent

VIZIANAGARAM, NOV. 9. The Congress rule in the State during the last six months was not to the expectations of people, said B.V.Raghuvulu, CPI(M) State secretary. Speaking on the "current political scenario - CPI(M) role" organised as part of the centenary celebrations of A.K. Gopalan ad B.T.Ranadeo at Masonic temple here on Monday evening, Mr. Raghavulu said that the present governance seemed to have the characteristics of the TDP rule as it too was leaning toward the World Bank.

Saying the CPI(M) was not against taking loans from the World Bank but against its diktat, he said the amount borrowed should be spent on projects that helped people.

Mr. Raghavulu alleged that the first phase of talks between the Government and the Maoists had ended without making any headway because the Maoists were not ready to give up arms.

Stating that the party would not hesitate to fight against the anti-people policies of the Government, he cautioned the Centre against not taking its allies for granted. He criticised the UPA Government for raising the fuel prices.

Mr. Raghavulu said that the Chief Minister, Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy, was on a stone-laying spree like his predecessor for various projects without clearing apprehensions of people on how the funds would be mobilised. He said many projects needed clearance from the Centre. The CPI(M) district secretaries, M.Krishna Murty and Ch.Tejeswara Rao, and the State Committee member, Ch.Narasinga Rao, spoke.
