TD, YSRC MPs must quit: CPI

Rajahmundry: Expressing serious concern over lack of major financial allocations to the state in the Union budget, CPI demanded MPs from TD and YSR Congress to quit their elected posts as a form of protest.

CPI activists led by state leader Muppala Nageswara Rao took out a protest march from their office to Shyamala centre and staged a rasta roko, affecting vehicular traffic while burning effigies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

Addressing the agitating activists, Rao said that five crore people were having high expectations from the Union budget and were let down by the Centre for failing to mention several provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014, not mentioning the allocation of funds to Polavaram and not sanctioning a separate railway zone for AP to be set up at Visakhpatnam.

CPI state executive committee member Ravula Venkaiah called it unfair on the part of the Centre to enhance tax on mobile phones being used by commoners and said that the salaried class were disappointed as they got no relief on income tax. He said that they would take up a movement to oppose the anti-people budget.
