Good response to door-to-door campaign: CPI

Staff Reporter

KHAMMAM: CPI district secretary K. Sambhasiva Rao has said the party received an overwhelming response during its door-to-door campaign taken up in the district as part of its drive to reach out one lakh families with the message of the national convention of the party scheduled to be held in Hyderabad from March 23 to 27.

Addressing a news conference here, he said the party, which was on a fund raising mission for construction of a new building for its district committee, could contact some 52,000 families so far. Another 50,000 contacts would be made within a fortnight. The building was estimated to cost over Rs. 2 crores.

‘No squabbles’

He said that the CPI was the only political party without any internal squabbles and its rank and file had been working in unity. Its image as well as its functioning with complete transparency were the twin factors that contributed to the positive response. He said the people at large were appreciative of the line of action taken by the party on key issues such as the submergence and displacement caused by the Polavaram project and the scheduled area regulation 1/70. The party had never tried to back out on the commitments made to the people and hence continued to enjoy the support of the masses.

Mr. Sambasiva Rao said that the party would oppose tooth and nail the Nagarjuanasagar tail pond scheme aimed at diverting the Godavari waters to Krishhna basin. The tender process that was likely to start by the week end for the scheme would be stalled by all means as the implementation of the scheme would be suicidal for the district people.
