Khagaria, Mar 5 (UNI) The CPI today demanded that the Centre ensure protection of life and property of the Hindi-speaking people living in Maharastra.
Senior CPI leader Upendra Narain Mishra and former party MP Jalaluddin Ansari told newsmen here that a resolution to this effect was adopted at the state-level convention of the party here.
He stated that if the remedial measures to check the increasing attacks on the Hindi-speaking people, especially Biharis, were not taken forthwith, the trend would pose serious threat to the unity and integrity of the country.
Thousands of Biharis had been forced to leave Maharashtra by the parochial elements and the Nitish Kumar Government should help them in establishing their own business and industries for earning livelihood in their home land, the CPI leaders maintained.
Expressing concern over the ongoing recruitment drive of doctors and paramedical staff on contract basis in the state, the CPI leaders demanded from the State Government to do away with the practice and provide them with regular appointment.
