There will be no let-up in the Samaikyandhra movement and striking employees and teachers will continue to picket the houses of Central and State Ministers and MPs, until they ensure acceptance of their resignations from the Parliament and Assembly, Kadapa District Mandal Education Officers Association president V. Nagamuni Reddy said on Tuesday.
Speaking at the teachers’ relay hunger strike camp in front of the Collectorate, Mr. Reddy reiterated that Ministers and MPs should stop making claims that they tendered resignation and should get them accepted first.
Speaking on the proposal of making Hyderabad as the joint capital only for 10 years, he said that the city had been developed over a period of six decades. How can a new capital be developed on par with Hyderabad within a decade, he asked.
Nearly 70 per cent of the State revenue is being generated from Hyderabad itself and the bifurcation would cause a big loss to the people of Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra regions, Mr. Nagamuni Reddy said. Students and unemployed of the two regions would become the non-local candidates in Telangana region, if it was granted Statehood, he said.
