Former TUDA Chairman and ex-TTD Trust Board member Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy, who is spearheading an anti-Congress and anti-TDP campaign in Chandragiri constituency began his 24-hour fast in front of the Tahsildar's office at Chandragiri on Monday.

Chevireddy claimed that his fast was aimed at exposing the government's ‘drama' behind confining its much-touted ‘Rachabanda' programmes only to the urban areas and mandal centres, giving a go by to YSR's concept of holding them in remote villages so as to get the real feedback on the problems of the people.

He said it was in this context that he was on a ‘padayatra' along with his followers last week in Chandragiri mandal and collected representations from villagers in person so that he could submit them in turn to the officials concerned who failed to conduct the ‘Rachabanda' programmes in their villages.

Chevireddy pitched a tent in front of the Tahsildar's Office at Chandragiri and sat on a fast even as district coordinator of the party and other party leaders addressed the meeting launching a broadside at the Kiran Kumar Reddy government, District Minister Galla Aruna Kumari and TDP president N. Chandrababu naidu for doing nothing to the constituency except indulging in ‘tall talks'.
