The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has  promised to fight for effective implementation of land reforms, decentralisation of power to the panchayati raj institutions, universalisation of public distribution system and protection of livelihood of farmers and workers.

Releasing the party manifesto here on Saturday, the State CPM Secretary Janardan Pati criticised the industrial policies of the Congress, BJP and BJD and promised an alternative industrial policy for sustainable growth of the State.

The industrial policy of the three major political parties, which promote mineral based industries in the state, are only expediting export of minerals.

 The mineral resources will vanish if these policies continue.

The party will continue to fight for an alternative policy having less displacement and more employment to the local people, the manifesto said.

Highlighting the issues of farmers, the party said successive Government have been neglecting the agriculture sector which has provided maximum employment.

 Remunerative price for farm produce, adequate credit at low rate of interest and and proper compensation during natural calamity are the other promises of the party in the manifesto.

The CPM will work for economic policies that will propel growth with employment.

Lambasting the BJD Government for its lack of drive in  the infrastructure development front, the party said it will fight for more central assistance for the State to improve the rail network and construction of more ports.
