Kannur, Jun 1 (UNI) CPI(M) Kerala unit Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan today alleged that the UPA Government at the Centre was ''trying to implement anti-people policies, without considering the suggestions of the Left parties.'' Inaugurating the 'Deshabhimani' family meet here, he said the CPI(M) had been suggesting a package of measures, which would help to overcome the steep rise in the international oil prices.

These included cut in import duty, reduction in customs and central excise duties, setting up of a price stabilisation fund and taxing the ''windfall profits'' being made by private oil companies in India.

The CPI(M) would organise a people's movement, if the government ignored the measures suggested by the Left parties to control the price rise of essential commodities.

The LDF Government in Kerala had launched several welfare schemes, including boost to agriculture and job opportunities.
