Establish integrated bus stand: CPI

By Our Special Correspondent

TIRUCHI, JAN.12 . The Communist Party of India urged the Centre and the State Government to keep a constant vigil on implementation of rural development programmes and schemes for the benefit of farmers.

A resolution to this effect was adopted at the 18th district conference of the CPI held at Manapparai recently.

Both governments sanctioned huge sums of money for various programmes. It must be ensured that the schemes were implemented properly to bring about a rural development in the real sense.

The Government should take steps for creating an awareness among the masses in this regard.

Another resolution urged the Government and the Tiruchi Corporation to establish an integrated bus stand in the corporation limits. Chaotic traffic conditions in the entire city in general and near the Central and Chathiram bus stands in particular were causing concern to road users. Only an integrated bus stand would resolve the issue, it said.

The conference said a special scheme to prevent the floodwater going waste and causing damages in the Viralimalai and Manapparai areas was planned at an outlay of Rs. 50 crores. But the scheme, which was lying in the cold storage, should be implemented immediately.

The meet urged the Government to set up a commission for safeguarding the interests of banana cultivators in Tiruchi and nearby districts. For, though the central Tamil Nadu accounted for a larger productivity of banana, the cultivators did not benefit much. Only the middlemen were reaping the benefit, it said and asked the Government to set up a commission for procuring the produce.

Yet another resolution expressed apprehension over the proposed extension of the New Veeranam Project on the Coleroon. If it was implemented, it would affect not only Perambalur and Thanjavur but also Tiruchi district. The Government should dispense with the proposal.

Many cooperative bodies were in a very bad condition. The Government should take steps to check administrative irregularities and revive them. More than 150 bus services plying in rural areas have remained suspended, causing inconvenience to the people and students. The Government should take steps to operate at least the government buses in these routes, a resolution said.

The national committee secretary, D. Raja, the national committee member, A. M. Gopu, M. Appadurai, MP, and the secretary of the district unit of the party, M. Selvaraj, spoke. K. S. Somu, member of the disciplinary committee, delivered the valedictory address.

Mr. Selvaraj was re-elected as the district secretary. While P. Ganesan was elected as the deputy district secretary, T. Indirajit was elected as the district treasurer. A 43-member new district committee was elected on the occasion.
