THE chief minister of Telangana, K Chandrasekhara Rao, has burdened the people without any valid reason, by advancing the state assembly elections. There is unrest in TRS. The front of Congress party, TDP, CPI and other parties is also in the same position, not able to go ahead. The BJP, in secret understanding with TRS, is also not able to find things in their favour.
In this background, the Bahujan Left Front of 29 parties including CPI(M), RSP, MCPI, representing most backward communities, minorities, women, and even nomadic tribes is going forward in the election campaign.
BLF is promising 60 seats and CM post to BCs and deputy CM to a woman and 10 MLA posts to Dwakra groups. Bright new leaders are being given tickets; even to the nomadic tribe candidates who have never filed nominations in their life. BLF has been allotted the symbol of a farmer with a plough, and the CPI(M) candidates are contesting on the Party symbol.
So far, BLF has declared candidates for 57 constituencies, which includes 16 CPI(M) candidates. The details of their social background are: BC-32, SC-14 ,ST-7,OC-2,and 4 are women candidates. In the declared constituencies, campaign has started with public meetings, bike rallies, and house to house campaigns. Public meetings are being addressed by Tammineni Veerabhadram, CPI(M) state secretary, and Nalla Surya Prakash and other leaders and they are going ahead with election campaign.
On October 30, the state level election preparatory meeting was held in Hyderabad. It was attended by leaders responsible for constituencies. From the all India centre, CPI(M) Polit Bureau member B V Raghavulu attended the meet and gave directions to the cadres and explained the tactics of the election.
Tammineni Veerabhadram regretted that even after seven decades of independence, rulers could not provide basic facilities to people. He said BLF proposes to give remunerative prices to farmers. Election rallies were held in Kuthbullapur, Wyra, Bhadrachalam, Peddapalli , Khanapur Miryalaguda, Narsapur and Yadadri
