NCP And CPM Express Satisfaction Over EVMs At Hackathon

The Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi told media that the CPM and the NCP that participated in the event were satisfied with the EVMs after the demonstration.

New Delhi: The Election Commission, which held hackathon on Saturday, said that the political parties that participated in the event expressed satisfaction of the EVMs.

The Commission decided to conduct hackathon to prove its EVMs are unhackable, as many parties alleged that EVMs were tampered with.

Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi told media that the CPM and the NCP that participated in the event were satisfied with the EVMs after the demonstration.

Claiming that the NCP and the CPM didn’t want to participate in the challenge, but were only interested in participating in an academic exercise, Zaidi said that now they were satisfied with the outcome.

Zaidi said that the CMP team expressed complete satisfaction and suggested that the commission should hold such demonstrations and awareness sessions proactively.

The NCP team had told us that doubts sprang up due to the alleged problems with EVMs during municipal elections in Maharashtra, Zaidi said. However, he clarified that the EVMs used by the Maharashtra Election Commission for the urban local body polls do not belong to the EC.

ZAidi said the NCP team expressed willingness to opt out requesting ECI should evolve a system, which clearly distinguishes ECI EVMs from that of state EC EVMs.

The NCP and the CPI (M) were the only parties that participated in the event. Three representatives each nominated by both parties attended the session.

The Commission used 14 EVMs from Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh for the challenge.

KCR Critical Of Rigid Indian Communists

Hyderabad: Opining that there was no alternative idealism to Communism, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has said the Indian Communists lowered their position because of their failure to adopt qualitative changes taking place at times.

Replying to the Opposition parties’ reactions on the budget proposals in the Assembly on Friday, the CM said China developed on fast track after keeping Mao Se Tung idealism aside and now China reached a position to dictate America. He said bringing debts was only for the development of the State and debts were must for development.

CPM MLA Sunnam Rajaiah objected to CM’s comments against Communism while seeking some clarifications. He said Communism ideology was scientific and it was good for humans. The CM said, “I read many books on Communist idealism, including Das Capital”. The problem with the Indian Communists was that they didn’t adopt time-being changes and they move rigidly and hence their position was at low ebb.

KCR said the Communist legendary leaders Mao and Lenin had said there was a need to the Communists to adapt the changes in the party in tune with the changes taking place in society. The Communists, particularly the Indian Communists, have miserably failed in this regard, he added.

Return Lepakshi lands to farmers, CPM tells AP CM


Amaravati: The Communist Party of India-Marxist AP unit has asked the government to return the lands that were taken from the farmers at Chilamatturu mandal of Ananthapur district for the Lepakshi Knoweldge Hub (LKH).

CPI-M State secretary P Madhu, in an open letter requested Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu to return the lands to the owners as the farmers have been struggling for survival without lands. He further said that not a single industry was established in these lands since they were acquired from the farmers in 2008. He recalled that the government had taken 8,844 acres of land from the farmers to establish the knowledge hub. He alleged that some of the farmers were not told about the intentions of the government in taking the land while a few were briefed about the plans to establish Lepakshi Knowledge Hub. He regretted that several of the farmers have not received the compensation from the government even after nine years.

The CPI-M leader said that the government had promised one job for each family when the lands were taken for the knowledge hub. The lands were pledged in the bank for a loan of Rs 790 crore without investing anything on the lands. The LKH had promised to invest around Rs 10,000 crore for industrial parks and provide around 1.50 lakh jobs to the people over a period 10 years. As the LKH failed to fulfil the conditions and the lands were attached by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a CBI case, the CPI-M leader requested the Chief Minister to get the lands cleared by the ED and return them to the owners.

Madhu said that the TDP had promised to return these lands during the 2014 elections. He further said that the TDP had included this issue in its 2014 election manifesto and demanded that the party now turn the promise into a reality by giving the lands to the owners.

Chandulal raps CPM over its anti-govt rant

‘Misinformation campaign’

Hyderabad: Telangana Tourism and Tribal Welfare Minister A Chandulal has lambasted the CPM for its rhetoric against the state government.

Talking to media persons in Hyderabad on Saturday, Chandulal took serious exception to the “baseless allegations of the CPM leaders against the government schemes during Mahajana Padayatra. The CPM leaders are criticizing the government for political mileage,” he said. Chandulal ridiculed the left party for its continuous protest programme and carrying out misinformation campaigns.

While the people are happy with the ruling party for implementing various welfare schemes, the CPM leaders are making futile efforts to target it, he said. The CPM should refrain from misguiding the people, he suggested. Since the beginning, the CPM leadership has been against the statehood and is now coming in the way of the development of the youngest State, he deplored. The CPM, Chandulal alleged, was envious of development and showing its bad face by making false allegations against the government.

The minister said the CPM is an opportunistic party and has no ethics and will have a truck with any other party for its survival. It is only the TRS party that has kept its promises and is implementing welfare schemes. It has completed a survey to accord Village Panchayat status to major tribal hamlets, Chandulal said. He also said the government took up decentralization of powers through new districts for speedy delivery of services and implementation of schemes, he claimed.
