‘The protests have an impact on the UPA government’

Amid enthusiasm and a substantial crowd at the Janagala Garjana at mandal headquarters Movva in Krishna district, leaders and intellectuals on Monday hoped that the State would remain united.

Massive rally

Several teams of folk artistes joined the massive rally against the proposed bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and led it on the roads.

Addressing the public at the main road junction at Movva Bus terminus, Krishna District Employees’ JAC chairman A. Vidhya Sagar opined that the 60-day protests impacted the UPA government and thus people’s protests were causing delay in bifurcation of the State.

Protests to continue

“The protests will go on until the decision for carving out Telangana is withdrawn by the Congress Working Committee,” said Mr. Vidhya Sagar. Intellectuals under several banners also stressed on the need for the people in every nook and corner across the Coastal Andhra region to stick to the demand for unified Andhra.

Public meet on Oct. 4

The Student Joint Action Committee (JAC) has taken strong objection to Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s remarks against the Seemandhra people.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, JAC leader Devineni Avinash said that the outburst of the TRS chief was unwarranted.

The TRS leader displayed his idiocy by insulting the Seemandhra people. Even Telanganites were not happy with his comments made against the Seemandhra people.

The social media sites were flooded with comments against his hate speech.

At least now, he should watch his words, else people would teach him a befitting lesson, he said.

Mr. Avinash said that Samaikyandhra Youth Force would organise a public meeting at Nirmala Convent grounds on October 4.

The students would also organise a massive relay hunger strike on October 2, Gandhi jayanthi, in front of Gandhii statue near VMC office as part of their struggle to keep the State united, he said.
