THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPI State Secretary Kanam Rajendran has said the government will bring in new law to protect government lands and to ensure that lands are not usurped.
At a face-to-face programme held under the aegis of Kesari Memorial test on Saturday, he said the LDF had started discussions on making of laws to protect lands. The government should take a relook into Agricultural reforms. The government should seriously think about distributing lands to the landless.
The CPI leader alleged that the prime minister withdrew Rs 500/1000 as he could not kept his promise on seizing black money stashed away in offshore banks. “The Centre’s aim is to destroy cooperative sector and they should clarify why they are taking such a stand,” he said and sarcastically alleged that Modi was collecting old notes through banks to give loans to Corporates.
With reference to Kannur violence, Kanam said that the LDF should take the initiative to restore peace. “It is the BJP’s intention to create an impression that law and order situation is worst in Kerala and they have been succeeding in it,” he said.
To another question, Kanam said a court is not anybody’s family property. Accredited journalists should be allowed to do reporting from court premises.
