Vijayawada, Stressing the need of alternative political alliance in the country and efforts were going on in that direction, CPI national secretary Dr K Narayana alleged that the Union government took the decision of abolition of gas subsidy with the conditions imposed by the World Bank.
Speaking to the media at CPI Andhra Pradesh state office Dasari Bhavan here on Wednesday, Narayana said the BJP, which opposed World Bank conditions once, launched efforts to bring down gas subsidy to zero. Finding fault with the Centre’s decision of increasing Rs.4 per every month on gas cylinder to abolish the gas subsidy totally, Narayana said the BJP never mentioned in its election manifesto that it will abolish gas subsidy and introduce GST but it hurriedly introduced them now. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was cheating people in broad daylight, he said and alleged that Modi was implementing the issues, which were not mentioned in the election manifesto and throwing the issues mentioned in manifesto aside.
Narayana alleged that the BJP government was trying to remove animal slaughtering houses across the nation and RSS was provoking Hinduism across the nation. The government was encouraging Hinduism only to see that the people not to oppose the schemes implementing the Central government. As part of it, the BJP branded the MLAs and MPs, who voted against NDA candidate Ramnath Kovind, as national betrayals. He alleged that the Beef was exported to other nations from Gujarat with the support of Bhajarang Dal and said that everything will be clear if one gives ‘mamools’ to Bhajarang Dal activists. “Otherwise they will resort to attacks and provoke communalism”, he lamented.
Expressing anger at Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh for interfering into the small issue between Communists and RSS activists in Kerala state, Narayana said that 40 to 50 incidents similar to Kerala every day were taking place in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh but never centre responded on it. This clearly shows the undemocratic rule of central government, he said. He reminded that the RSS activists were resorting to attacks on daliths and Muslim minorities alleging that they ate beef. The BJP was branding the Left and Secular forces, who were trying to protect the democracy in the nation, as national betrayals, he alleged.
He alleged that the BJP, RSS and Sangh Pariwar forces were trying to pollute the two Telugu states, which were away from communalism. He said that Telangana state Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was waiting to join NDA government at the cost of people, who wage movement against ‘Dora’ culture for decades, of the state. It was sad on the part of YSRCP, which has no need of BJP, for getting ready to extend its support to BJP, he bemoaned. He questioned YSRCP and TDP, which quarrels each other at state, to tell as to why they were sitting side by side at centre. Reacting to a question, Narayana said that he was not feeling that Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan will not compromise politically with TDP.
He said that there was a need to float alternate political alliance to obstruct anti-people policies and communal forces. The CPI stepping ahead in this direction to wage movement against the central government policies, he said. CPI state leaders Muppalla Nageshwara Rao, Akkineni Vanaja also present.
