Piqued at the silence of Union Minister and Visakhapatnam MP, D.Purandeswari over the on-going agitation for integrated State, the students of Joint Action Committee took out a funeral procession of her and burnt her effigy. Even though a non-local, people of Visakhapatnam made her their MP by giving good majority in the Lok Sabha elections. It was unfortunate that she had not bothered to express even solidarity with the agitation. They demanded the resignation of Purandeswari.
