'Development has come to a standstill in the State', says CPI State secretary Narayana

July 2, 2013 - Visakhapatnam

Speaking to media in the city, the CPI State Secretary K Narayana on Tuesday said that development in the State has come to a standstill due to uncertainty over Telangana for the past several years.

He said that it is high time for the UPA government to put an end to the ambiguity over the issue. Welcoming the AIGG general secretary Digvijay Singh's statement that the Centre would take a decision on the issue, he said that the people of Telangana were in favour of bifurcation. He branded the Minister for Tribal Welfare P Balaraju as 'anti-tribal' and an agent of bauxite mining companies and said he was not showing any interest in getting cancelled the MoU signed with Jindal, Anrak and other companies. He said that the Minister was issuing statements opposing bauxite mining only to avoid criticism. He charged the Union Minister for Panchayat Raj V Kishore Chandra Deo for not doing much for the welfare of tribals in the State. He addressed a rally at Chintapalli and interacted with tribal people. CPI district secretary JV Satyanarayana Murty, former MLA G Demudu, senior leaders AJ Stalin and B Ramarajyam took part in the rally.
