Forum seeks permission from Police Department

The Samaikyandhra Forum has decided to organise ‘Samaikyandhra (United Andhra Pradesh) Varotsvalu in Hyderabad in April, 2012. The forum will announce the dates as soon as it gets permission from the police department, according to forum president Balaga Prakash.

Addressing a media conference here on Thursday, he said that the forum leaders were touring all the districts to garner the support of all the sections to step up pressure on the Union government to announce that the State will be united forever.

“Telangana agitation has benefited only TRS president K.Chandrasekhara Rao and his family members. We request all the Telangana people to understand their ill motives and stop agitations for the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh,” said Mr.Prakash.

Forum representatives G.Ramesh, Shyamsundar, and Deelipkumar said the forum would continue to organise agitations a in a peaceful manner.

They urged the students of Telangana region not to listen to Professor Kodandaram since he ‘instigated' many youngsters to sacrifice their lives. The forum leaders hoped that students of all the universities of Andhra region would actively participate in the activities in support of united Andhra Pradesh.
