Calling upon people to make the State bandh on April 9 a grand success, activists of the Left parties on Saturday took out a bicycle rally in the city. The Left parties gave the bandh call demanding that the State government withdraw the hike in electricity charges and ensure uninterrupted supply of power to all sectors.

The rally that was flagged off at the Collectorate proceeded towards Balaji Cheruvu centre, Salipeta, Main Road, Tilak Street, Bhanu Gudi Junction, and culminated at the Zilla Parishad office.
