Kottayam, Feb 13 (UNI) CPI (M) state conference assured the defects of the LDF government would be corrected and more efficient welfare and development-oriented policies implemented.
The state conference admitted though the government's performance was generally satisfactory, there were areas for correction.
On the basis of experience in the past two years, speakers at the meeting emphasised on the need for preparing comprehensive guidelines for the development of the state and performance of the government.
Vested interests had succeeded to a certain extend in creating controversies to stall development.
Citing the recent HMT land controversy, the meeting charged the intention was to keep away the Kerala investors and such anti-development interests should be identified.
Government interventions for the cause of the people were against vested caste and religious forces.
The regressive forces were dreaming of a second liberation struggle for implementing the agenda of globalisation, the conference said in a resolution and appealed to the people to oppose their move which was detrimental to the comprehensive development and cultural progress of the state.
The conference sought the cooperation all concerned for creating an investment-friendly atmosphere in the state even as it demanded stern action against the land mafia.
For rapid industrial growth, a good atmosphere for labour was essential, it opined and asked the government to take stern action against unhealthy tendencies prevailing in the labour sector and protect the democratic rights of the workers.
Comprehensive package for the revival of the KSRTC and KWA was another demand.
Another resolution appealed to the government to increase the pension welfare fund benefits.
Budgetary support for farm workers welfare fund, strengthening various welfare funds and steps to increase pension were among the other demands.
