CPI plea to government on effluent discharge into canal

ERODE: Communist Party of India State Secretary D. Pandian has urged the State Government to put an end to the discharge of effluents into the Kalingarayan canal.

Water source

Talking to mediapersons after inaugurating the party’s fund-raising campaign in Erode on Sunday, he said that the channel, a major water source for a large number of farmers in the district, was heavily polluted and the government should initiate immediate efforts to protect it.

Mr. Pandian also criticised the government for the continuing power shortage in the State.

The successive governments in Tamil Nadu had failed to take steps to enhance power generation capacity in the last 30 years, he said.

Price rise

On the issue of price rise, he said that a change in the regime at the Centre or in the policies of the government was required to control the prices of essential commodities.

He said that the fund-raising campaign would also help the party learn various issues faced by the poor in the State. Senior party functionaries were present.
