sitaram-yechury-5653CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury has alleged that the nation continues to face agrarian and unemployment problems as the BJP’s election promises fall flat.

He said at a press conference in Ranchi that the purchasing power of the people has decreased because there was no manufacturing market to increase the capacity of purchasing power.

Yechury alleged suicide by farmers were continuing in the face of agrarian distress. Demanding return of land acquired under special economic zone as “work has not begun” even after five years of acquisition, Yechury claimed “economic pressure is building up in the country, while the Centre shows only dreams to the people.”

“There is no dearth of resources, but crony capitalists will not allow themselves to be taxed as they will not get profits,” he added.
