CPI Jail Bharo on May 14 against Land Bill
HYDERABAD: Telangana State CPI Secretary and Former MLA Chada Venkat Reddy today said his party would organize a massive Jail Bharo program on May 14 against Land Acquisition Bill being planned by the Centre.
Addressing the media at Makhdoom Bhavan on Thursday, Venkat Reddy accused the BJP-led NDA government of coming up with another draconian bill to deprive the farmers of their lands and hand them over to corporate companies.
The Land Acquisition Bill is totally against the interests of people and farmers, he alleged. As per the national party’s call, the Telangana CPI unit would organize protest program of Jail Bharo on May 14, he said. He also slammed the Centre for trying to press the bill on parliamentarians.
The BJP Government, instead of protecting the interests of the farming community in the country, is trying to loot them, he contended.
KCR’s allegation refuted
To mark one year of Telangana State formation, the CPI State unit will conduct celebrations in a big way, Venkat Reddy declared. He urged Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao to call an all-party meeting on the flagship program of Water Grid.
The CPI leader took serious exception to Rao’s comment that the Left party was against separate Telangana State. He also rubbished the chief minister’s remarks that the CPI was coming in the way of Telangana development. He said he would leave the issue to Rao’s wisdom whether CPI was against statehood or was for Telangana. He suggested that Rao should not make such baseless comments. (NSS)
