Raghavulu slams TDP's Maha Dharna

Vijayawada, August 27, 2012: Communist Party of India (Marxist) state secretary B V Raghavulu on Saturday took serious objection to the Maha Dharna launched by Telugu Desam Party demanding releasing of water from Nagarjuna Sagar Dam to farmers in Krishna delta.

Talking to media persons, Raghavulu suspected the commitment of TDP over the issue and alleged that it was staging the dharna in order to get political mileage.

Accusing the TDP leaders of double speak on the issue, he said that the party was resorting to `opportunistic politics’ on the water issue.

The CPI (M) leader informed that the party would organize widespread protests across the State over the energy crisis in the first week of September. He also informed that the party would stage protests across the State on August 28 to mark martyrs day of power employees.

Stating that political crisis will continue to prevail in the State, he asked Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to tackle it efficiently.

He also appealed to the Chief Minister to accept resignation of Roads and Buildings Minister Dharmana Prasad Rao, who has been named as an accused by the CBI in its charge sheet in the disproportionate assets case of Kadapa MP Jagan Mohan Reddy.

He also asked the Chief Minister to take action against all tainted ministers in the government.
