CPM plans stir against State, Centre budgets

Speaking to media persons, he said the awareness will be brought among the public about the introduction of an alternative political and economic policy by organising open rallies in taluks and hoblis. There are various problems in front of the public which needs to be solved. The protests will be carried out by concentrating on issues like price rise, ration card confusions, land and residential sites to the poor, he said adding that the date and the venue will be finalised at the state Secretariat Board meeting which will be held in Bangalore within few days.

“B S Yeddyurappa led BJP government which presented the agriculture budget with hyped publicity, has in reality not done anything to save the agriculture sector in the State. It has not mentioned any measures to stop the farmers’ suicide cases. Instead, the plans of the government to take away agriculture lands from the farmers and selling it to the Corporate houses is quite visible,” he complained.

He further criticised the stand of the government in providing 8,000 acres of agriculture land to Mittal Company in Bellary district, where the government was actually supposed to lend only 2000 acres of land. “The Government is on a conspiracy to promote industries in the State by sidelining the poor farmers. The government is trying its best to provide as many 9 lakh acres of such land to the industrialists,” he claimed. He said that the government is into misappropriation as it has brought amendments to the Land Reforms Act.

Meanwhile, he also criticised the Central government for not taking any measures to stop the price rise. If the government had increased the financial aid to the food crops from the current aid of Rs 58 crore to Rs 65 crore, the price rise could have been stopped, he opined.
