Hyderabad: The State council of Communist Party of India (CPI) took strong exception to the demand of the Congress M P Mr L Rajagopal for taking action against the CPI workers for desecration of the Statues on the Tank Bund.
In a letter addressed to Mr Rajagopal here today, the CPI state Secretary Dr K Narayana, condemned the action of the former, who, in a letter addressed to the Chief Minister, alleged involvement of CPI workers in the damage caused to the Statues. Dr Narayana said that Mr Rajagopal’s contention exposed his political ignorance. He said that CPI is not like the Congress party which has one policy in coastal Andhra and the opposite in Telangana region. The CPI has taken a decision in favour of bifurcation of the State in the best interests of the State.
He said that CPI was not part of the political JAC, but it is campaigning independently for Telangana state. The CPI has extended solidarity to the JAC programme of March 10, though it was not part of JAC. It was surprising how a person who could not distinguish between extending solidarity and actually taking part in a programme got elected to Lok Sabha, he added in a dig at Mr Rajagopal.
The CPI leader has also advised Mr Rajagopal to go through the statement issued by the CPI immediately after the March 10 incidents and the condemnation issued by it after visiting the Tank Bund on March 11. The CPI member in the Legislative Assembly Mr K Sambasiva Rao has also condemned the incident in the House, he added.
Dr Narayana hoped that at least now, Mr Rajagopal would have correct assessment of the CPI. He also said that before making an allegation, the Mp should have known it’s political impact. (NSS)
