NALGONDA:Criticising the chief ministers of the twin Telugu states of driving people on illusions and making foreign tours in the name of attracting investments, CPM politburo member BV Raghavulu said the governments should utilise the available manpower to strengthen the states.
Addressing the party cadre at the state plenary meeting of the Communist party of India - Marxist (CPM), Raghavulu said the chief ministers are trying to attract investment at a time where the entire world is facing financial crisis.
“A majority of the countries in the world are facing financial crisis and at this juncture no country is willing to invest in other countries. Even China is undertaking domestic reforms to get rid of their own financial problems. Taking China as a role model, both the CMs should focus on best utilisation of available man power to emerge powerful”, opined Raghavulu.
He slammed Prime Minister Modi and BJP for following communal agenda and alleged the government is dividing people in the name of cow slaughter and removing reservation to weaker sections.

CPM Telangana state secretary Tammineni Veerebhadram said people of the state are fed up with the anti-people rule of KCR. He said Warangal Lok Sabha byelection is a referendum to KCR’s rule. He claimed that common candidate of left parties will win the seat with the support of people.
He said anti-establishment feelings are growing across the country. If the government does not realise it, the people will express their anger in the form of agitations similar to those before formation of Telangana.
Educationist and former MLC Chukka Ramaiah expressed his displeasure on privatisation of key sectors like health and education. In this regard, irrespective of parties all must unite against privatisation, he said. He suggested to the government to address the issues pertaining to poor.
