Udupi: "Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) has failed to fulfill the fundamental needs of the people in the country, hence, the Communist Party of India (M) wants to change the government at the centre," said Balakrishna Shetty, District CPI(M) Secretary.
Addressing a press meet at Udupi Press Club, Balakrishna Shetty said that the society has not developed. "Severe unemployment and high rate of inflation are still prevailing. More than one crore youths have lost their jobs. The centre has not done anything about it, and how will it provide employment to the youths who have just completed their education? Even the farmers have not got any justice from Union government," he added.
"Democracy is in danger due to Narendra Modi government. Businessmen's loans to the tune of Rs 6 lakh crores has been waived, but the Modi government has not waived the loans of the poor farmers. Amith Shah was convicted in several cases and debarred from entering Gujarat state. But now all agencies of the country are controlled by Amith Shah and Narendra Modi," said Balakrishna Shetty.
"For the past five years the BJP government in the centre has failed to meet the needs of the people and has also failed to fulfill its promise made during the previous general election. The BJP is also planning to amend the constitution. Our constitution and democracy needs to be protected. Hence, CPI(M) strongly opposes voting for BJP in upcoming election," he added.
K Shankar, state CPI(M) member said that several cases have been registered against Amith Shah. "The failures of central government for the past five years have forced us to support non-BJP parties. CPI(M) is campaigning against the BJP in Byndoor, Siddhapur, Kundapur and other places of Udupi-Chickmagaluru Lok Sabha Constituencies," added Shankar.
CPI(M) will support Congress-Janata Dal (S) coalition candidate Pramod Madhwaraj, from Udupi-Chickmagaluru constituency, for the upcoming Lok Sabha election," said Shankar.
District Secretary of CPI(M) Suresh Kallagara and CPI(M) member Venkatesh Koni were present during the press meet.
