Maoists train guns on KCR
‘He has given the go-by to his election promise of waiving farm loans’
The CPI(Maoist) has dubbed the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti “feudal and capitalist” like all other parties which protected properties of landlords and capitalists belonging to Andhra Pradesh. Therefore, “we are calling upon people and democratic forces to wage a struggle till the problems of drought, drinking and irrigation water and fodder are resolved,” CPI(Maoist) Telangana State committee official spokesman Jagan stated in a release. Jagan said Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao had given the go-by to the election promise of the TRS to waive loans of farmers.
On the other hand, Mr. Rao had promoted capitalists and corporates within and outside the country by giving them free land, water and power “after collecting crores of rupees of bribe”. Mr. Rao had, deliberately, abstained from making efforts to revive Nizam Sugars with a view to ensuring profits for Gayatri Sugar factory, the release said. About 2,000 farmers, faced with crop failure caused by adverse seasonal conditions and unremunerative prices, had committed suicide in Telangana. Yet, the State and Central governments had failed to waive their loans, Jagan stated.
In the garb of Telangana, Jagan alleged, Mr. Rao had continued the policies of former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy. The Mission Kakatiya and Mission Bhageeratha were an extension of Jalayagnam programme of Reddy to earn commissions, he stated, adding that Mr. had Rao burdened the State exchequer with loans of Rs 1.5 lakh crore in the name of development. At the same time, Mr Rao was describing the State as rich.
The report of the Comptroller and Auditor-General had exposed that the expenditure out of the allocations to missions Kakatiya and Bhageeratha, Haritha Haram and Kalyanalakshmi were meagre. Jagan said about 500 mandals in the State were affected by drought and the government should take up drought relief measures on a war footing.
