CPM state conference: Severe criticisms raised against CPI-led revenue, agricultural ministries


From CPM state conference at Kochi

Kochi: Severe criticisms were raised against the departments of revenue and agriculture under CPI ministers. The delegates from Idukki slammed the revenue department for its 'lapse' in granting title deeds for those who have been holding land for decades. CPM State Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan discursively admitted the accusations raised at the conference against the revenue department.

By referring to the grievances of the people who are residing at the unassessed lands ('poramboke lands') of corporations and municipalities, the delegates enumerated the negligence of the department of revenue. Demands were raised at the conference to ensure interventions for revamping the ‘layams’ (line houses) where the plantation workers live. Though the government has decided to introduce a housing project for them, the revenue department is attempting to impede it, they said. The leaders urged to resolve the issues when a new plantation directorate will be formed in the state.

Another section of delegates alleged that the agriculture department has been undertaking an anti-farmer approach. They also accused that no steps were taken to ensure reasonable prices for agricultural products in the state. The delegates recommended forming an agricultural workforce and facilitating the storage and marketing of the products.

The police force has been indicted for its ruthless behaviour against the public and the delegates reminded the Chief Minister to take immediate action over this.
