Modi trying to give communal colour to Chandrayan 3: CPM

Must read


CPI (M) State secretary V Srinivasa Rao has alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to give communal colour to the Chandrayaan 3 success.

Addressing the CPM district plenary meeting here on Sunday, he said that the Chandrayaan 3 success is a result of scientists’ efforts. The Chandrayan success is a national heritage. “But Narendra Modi wants to communalize the Chandrayaan 3 success. The Chandrayaan 3 success is not Modi’s personal victory but its nation’s victory,” the CPI (M) state secretary stated.

The CPM leader slammed that the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam board was filled with tainted and corrupt individuals. Dalits should be given due importance in filling the TTD board, he demanded.

CPI State secretary Srinivasa Rao expressed concern over spiraling prices of essential commodities and he cited that gas cylinder price was Rs 400 when the Modi government came to power and now the same gas cylinder is sold at Rs 1200.
The state and Central governments have not taken steps to regularize the skyrocketing prices of essential commodities, he lamented.

Adding to the woes of people, the AP government has hiked the power tariff so steeply that the common men are unable to bear it, he said, recalling that Modi assured of generating 2 crore jobs but he failed to do so.

Moreover, 1.50 crore employees have lost their jobs during the last four years, he lamented. The AP government has not released the job calendar either, he pointed out.

Meanwhile, the CPM passed resolutions in the district plenary asking the state government to study the drought situation and take steps to disburse compensation to the farmers. Steps should be taken to ensure that there would be no scarcity of irrigation water and drinking water should be supplied through tankers wherever it is required. Steps should also be taken to ensure that there would be no power cuts to the agriculture and industrial sectors.

The plenary also expressed concern over the growing harassment, atrocities, and molestations against women in recent days. The atrocities against women are growing even after the introduction of the DISHA Police Act, it said and demanded to take stringent steps to check the atrocities against women.
