Hyderabad, Apr 24 (UNI) Leaders of the CPI(M) today met Governor Rameswar Thakur and submitted a memorandum about the government's alleged apathy towards the problems of the tribals.
Party State Secretary and Politburo Member B V Raghavulu complained in the memorandum that though a recommendation for merging 800 villages in the scheduled area had been made to the Centre, it was not implemented in the state.
He also alleged the government was showing apathy even when tribal lands were being alienated.
Talking to newsmen later, Mr Raghavulu described the bandh organised by the tribals protesting against the Polavaram Project as successful.
The CPI (M) leader said his party would seek the cooperation of other parties and organise 'Chalo Polavaram' programme.
