`CPI will make Centre fulfil poll promises'

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, NOV. 20. The CPI secretary, D. Raja, said that the BJP would emerge stronger if the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) did not implement the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) sincerely.

Hike rollback

Speaking at the party's State council meeting here on Saturday, Mr. Raja said the party would make the UPA Government fulfil its poll promises and the issues identified in the CMP.

At the next UPA meeting, he said, the CPI would demand rollback of fuel price hike. The Left parties would not give up their demand and press the Government to find alternative measures. He suggested that the Government should think of reducing the duties on petroleum products.

Mr. Raja observed that the BJP, after receiving setbacks in successive elections, was trying to salvage its image by making an issue of arrest of the Kanchi seer, Jayendra Saraswati. He said this proved that everybody was equal before the lawand wondered how the arrest was dubbed an "insult" to Hindus.

National meet

The CPI national conference will be held at Chandigarh between March 29 and April 3. Many issues, including the emergence of CPI (Maoist), would come up for discussions. He said the party reviewed the performance of the UPA Government and felt that it should shift its focus to rural development.

The meeting was attended by Central Secretariat member, Shamim Faizi and CPI State secretary and MP, S. Sudhakar Reddy.
