‘Trinamool Congress victimising CPI(M) cadre'

Staff Reporter


‘AP government spending all its time trying to hold on to power'

‘Congress government has lost control over the administration'


ANANTAPUR: Former Kurnool MLA and senior CPI(M) party leader, M.A Gafoor, today wanted the West Bengal government to stop its programme of victimising the innocent cadre of the party.

Speaking at the general body meeting, where the district party unit expressed its solidarity to the party cadre fighting the alleged gross injustice being meted out to them, he alleged that more than 400 of their cadre were killed in the last few months since the Trinamool Congress came to power.

Refuting the remarks from certain political parties that the chapter of CPI(M) in the country is over, he sought to argue saying that the party had garnered 41 percent of the vote, which is more than the percentage of votes won by any ruling party partnering the UPA. Meanwhile, the district secretary of the party, Obulakonda Reddy, said the current dispensation in the State is spending all its time trying to hold on to power by ensuring that their MLAs do not walk away with any other party. He also accused the State government of losing control over the administration, which reflects in their incapability to supply quality seed to farmers in the ensuing agricultural season. “Because of the government supplying groundnut seed of very inferior quality, many farmers in the district have not shown interest in buying it from the government. Instead they are approaching the private parties, making it prohibitively costly for them,” he alleged even as he argued that the farmers are hit harder by rain playing truant.
