The Left parties in the Union Territory will jointly organise agitations  from June 19, to take on the alleged ‘failures’ of the All India N R Congress government here, CPI State secretary R Viswanathan said on Saturday.

Addressing a press meet, he said the AINRC government was a ‘failure’ in all fronts. It has hit the common man with a steep power tariff hike and food items are not available in PDS shops, he alleged.

Holding the government responsible for ground water pollution, Viswanathan charged that it did not monitor the discharge of effluents  from industries, which was seeping and polluting the ground water. Even the Appellate Authority was non-functional. The attitude of the government in dealing with the medical college has led to the MCI declining approval to it. Viswanathan said power theft and corruption in the department should be set right. The milk supplied by Ponlait is  without any fat content, he alleged.

Even the police department lacked a system to track calls and is dependent on private telecom service providers for it. The device costs only `4 crore, and the police has been sending proposals for the past three years, but the government has not yet responded, he said. He said that there was no regulation of school fees and the Right to Education Act was not implemented in the UT.
