Chief Minister gives positive response to CPI(M) demands

Special Correspondent

Ministerial panel to go into issue of house sites for the poor


  • Ministers to visit hunger strike of CPI(M) today
  • Left party not to tolerate `neglect' of the common man
  • Condition of some fasting leaders causes concern

    HYDERABAD: A solution to the indefinite hunger strike by CPI(M) leaders demanding house sites, house site pattas and rations cards for the poor appears to be in sight.

    The Chief Minister, Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy, assured a delegation of CPI (M) MPs and MLAs led by the party's State secretary, B.V. Raghavulu, who met him on Monday that a ministerial committee would be constituted to resolve the issue.

    Response awaited

    The committee comprising the Revenue Minister, Dharmana Prasada Rao, and the Municipal Administration Minister, Koneru Ranga Rao, would examine the CPI(M)'s demands and announce the Government's decision in two days.

    The Ministers would visit the hunger strike camp on Wednesday morning and explain the Government's decision to the fasting leaders and request them to end their fast. Speaking to reporters later, the CPI(M) leaders, however, warned the Government not to ignore the interests of the common man lest it would have to pay a "heavy price." "The response from the Government is totally positive and we will take a decision on the future course of action after the Ministers come out with proposals," the CPI(M) floor leader in the Assembly, N. Narasimhaiah, said.

    The Government deputed a team of doctors to the hunger strike camp to conduct tests on the health condition of the fasting CPI(M) leaders.

    Meanwhile, the health condition of some of the fasting leaders started deteriorating with symptoms like high blood pressure and changes in blood sugar levels.
