KADAPA: Penumalli Madhu, the CPM State secretary demanded that the government should conduct an all-party meeting to discuss the problems prevailing in the state. He held a press conference at the CPM district new office on Saturday and urged the government to give clarity on the four main problems of the state which were of great concern to the people.
Minister Botsa Satyanarayana’s recent statement on the capital of the state was confusing the people, he said. He questioned the government about the proposal to shift the capital to Kurnool or Donakonda and asked whether the decision was being made by the government or was the proposal for the benefit of the real estate business people.
Due to lack of sand, lakhs of labourers, building workers, construction companies were facing problems, he said.
The government had to clarify the reasons for the lack of sand, he demanded. He welcomed the decision of 75 percent jobs for the local people in industries and the decision of filling up all the existing vacancies in all the government departments. There were 1.20 lakhs employees working on contract and outsourcing basis in all the government departments, he said. All of them were concerned about their jobs.
Meanwhile, the government had announced that all the work will be done by village secretariats. The government had to assure them their employment, he said. Rayalaseema and North Andhra were suffering from severe drought conditions, he said. The central government had to announce a special package for these two areas, said Mr Madhu. Ex MP M Abul Gafoor and CPM District secretary Anjaneyulu were present in the pressmeet.
