Hyderabad, Feb 8 (UNI) The CPI(M) will step up its agitation against the Congress government in Andhra Pradesh by joining hands with like-minded political parties and work towards a third alternative in the state.
Briefing newspersons about the political resolution adopted at 22nd State Party Conference here, CPI(M) Central Secretariat Member V Srinivasa Rao and State Secretariat Member S Veeraiah said the party would intensify its ''Bhooporatam'' (land struggle) programme.
The four-phased land distribution programme taken up by the state government was ''farce'' as the revenue department had failed to practically handover the land to poor, they alleged.
Ruling out any electoral understanding with the Congress in next Assembly elections, Mr Rao dubbed the Congress as ''number one enemy in the state'' and the BJP ''number one enemy in the country''.
They alleged that Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, who had fought against the previous TDP regime for functioning at the behest of the World Bank, was now adhering to the dictates of the Bank.
The government had failed to provide the required support to State Road Transport Corporation and Singareni Colleries and was paving the way for privatisation, they alleged.
Referring to Comptroller and Auditor General's report on Rs 1300 crore-irregularities in irrigation projects, they charged the Congress government with turning ''Jalayagnam'' project as a platform for the party to mint money.
The government also failed to maintain law and order in the state, they alleged.
