PUDUCHERRY: Left parties, (CPI, CPM and RSP), Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) and MDMK will announce the Makkal Nala Kuttu Iyakkam’s (Joint Movement For People’s Welfare) Common Minimum Programme (CMP) within the next fortnight, CPI state secretary R Viswanathan said on Thursday.

The CPI leader was explaining the deliberations at the Iyakkam’s meeting held on Wednesday.

He said at the meeting, the Left and the other parties discussed the political situation and decided to present an alternative policy of governance before the people.

He said the Left had already formulated the  policy and the suggestions of others in the Iyakkam would also be incorporated to give final shape to it before presenting it to the people. A CMP would be evolved based on the policies after discussions and be announced within two weeks, he added.

Viswanathan said the BJP government at the Centre and the ruling NR Congress in the Union Territory were following ‘anti-people’ policies. Pointing out that the NR Congress was following similar policies pursued by the previous Congress regime in the UT, the CPI leader said the people have lost faith in the ruling government as it was neither bothered about the welfare of the people nor the development of the Union Territory. He said the democracy and its values were not properly functioning in the UT.

He said the people were looking for an alternative as they have lost faith in the NR Congress and Congress parties. Viswanathan said the N R Congress government was obtaining loan from market and putting the burden on the people like the previous Congress government did.He said that at present, the parties had formed the ‘joint movement for people’s welfare’ and would be facing the Assembly elections.

When pointed out to the stoppage of low-quality’ wheat distribution through ration shops, Viswanathan said CM was trying to wriggle himself out of the issue and asked for thorough probe.
