Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 29 (UNI) The Congress in Kerala would launch stirs against the alleged 'anti-people' policies of the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government in the state, KPCC President Ramesh Chennithala said today.
Talking to newspersons here, he said the course of action for agitations would be decided at the United Democratic Front (UDF) meeting to be held on October 7.
Mr Chennithala alleged that the LDF Government was adopting anti-people policies during the past two-and-half year.
All taxes, bus fare, water and electricity charges were increased, he said and added that the outcome of every LDF meeting had been a declaration of new taxes on the people.
He alleged that the LDF had started agitations against the Centre only to hide their failure.
In the last budget the Water Authority had received Rs 1,800 crore for bridging the loss, he said adding that the Local Bodies had to pay Rs 750 crore towards water charges.
Without realising the dues from the local bodies, the the government had increased the water charges up to 130 per cent, he alleged.
The KPCC President said the Congress workers would organise a fast in front of the Water Authority offices in all the 140 constituencies.
Alleging that the state government had failed to submit any comprehensive suggestions to the Centre about the trifurcation of the Kerala State Electricity Board Mr Chennithala said the Union Power Minister had stated that if the state government had requested for more time, it would have been given.
