'Legalise land encroached by farmers'

CPI takes resolution to fight for various issues

The CPI has taken resolution to demand the government to legalise the lands encroached by the farmers in the district.

The resolution was passed during 10th CPI District Conference to fight against the State and the Central governments for their anti-people policies, said CPI District Unit President H M Renukaradhya.

Speaking to the media persons on Wednesday, he said that the Conference has decided to bring political awareness among the people, to create a political movement and to strengthen the party.

The party has planned to fight for various causes including permanent solution for land encroachment problem, implementation of irrigation projects, provide basic facilities to the people and to take resolutions in favour of the district’s development and to bring pressure on the government to abide by the demands, he said.

Farmers have submitted applications under Forum No 50 and 53 requesting the district administration to legalise their farm land. But the district administration is legalizing the lands of the influential people. Poor are put to trouble. The government should immediately legalise the land and give the land rights to the farmers, he urged.

Further the party has demanded for the quick implementation of Karagada scheme which intends to provide water to 50 villages. They have also taken a resolution to demand the government to cancel the plans of digging tunnel under Upper Bhadra project which can cause draught in the area.

“The government should give compensation to the farmers who have incurred loss due to the wild elephant attacks. The government should also buy the land and distribute it to the poor landless people in gram panchayat limits. Compensation should be given to the villages like Hanthoor, Devavrinda, Kottigehara and Oorubage in Moodigere taluk which have incurred loss due to heavy rainfall. Basic facilities should be provided to the colonies resided by SC and ST community members,” he said.

In the resolution, the party leaders have also urged the government to establish a medical college in Kuduremukh town. The employees who were working in the mining companies should be provided rehabilitation.
