THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The reported move by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to do away with the Planning Commission is against the country’s development and will only serve to destroy the nation’s federal structure as envisaged in the Constitution, KPCC president V M Sudheeran has said.

In a statement, Sudheeran alleged that Modi’s motive was to set a development agenda that aims at abandoning the marginalised sections of society and facilitating the corporate sector to thrive. He accused the Prime Minster of throwing the common man to the mercy of market forces and abandoning the development policies pursued by the Central Government since the Nehruvian era.

The KPCC chief said that no discussion was initiated among political parties and various states before moving ahead to implement such a far-reaching decision. The issue was not even discussed in Parliament, Sudheeran said.

‘’Making such statements without even consulting his own party exposes the autocratic style of Modi’s functioning,’’ Sudheeran said and called for massive protests against the move.
