Communist Party of India (Marxist) State Secretary G C Bayya Reddy has said that the party would  launch a mass movement across the State against the “anti-people” policies of the Union and State governments.

Addressing a gathering in Mulbagal on Sunday evening, Reddy said the Centre was planning to introduce various anti-farmer measures such as contract farming, future trading and cash transfer against subsidies.

The BJP government in the State was eagerly waiting to implement these programmes, he alleged.

In Malur


Addressing a gathering as part of the party’s awareness programme in Malur on Monday, Reddy said the UPA government at the Centre and BJP government in the state were competing with each other in corruption.

Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, several ministers and MLAs and over 700 officials have caused a loss of Rs 16,000 crore to the State by aiding illegal mining in Karnataka, Reddy said by referring to a Lokayukta report.

“The credit for making Karnataka the most corrupt state in country should go to the BJP government,” he remarked.

UPA govt

At the Centre, the UPA government was involved in various scams amounting to Rs 1.75 lakh crore. Even Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his cabinet colleagues have been accused of indulging in corrupt practises, he charged.

However, CPI (M) governments in West Bengal, where it was in power for 34 years, and Kerala never faced any corruption charges, he  claimed.

Karnataka Prantha Raitha Sangha leader Maruti Manpade, CPI (M) leader Gandhinagar Narayanaswamy and others addressed the gathering in Malur.
