ELURU: There appears to be no let-up in the agitation launched in West Godavari district by different organisations against the move to bifurcate the State.

The public reaction to the UPA Government’s move to initiate the process of forming Telangana has been so far spontaneous and voluntary.

The district headquarters town has been witnessing as many as five hunger strike camps, including the one launched by the All Party Action Committee.

TDP MLA from Denduluru Chintamaneni Prabhakar sat on indefinite fast on Tuesday last along with his supporters. The AP Revenue Services Association launched a pen down strike on Wednesday. The association members decided to take up relay fast on Thursday.

Autorickshaw drivers in Eluru took out a massy rally in support of unified State.

Schools and colleges continued to remain closed as a result of the unrest.

The Private School Managements Association resolved to close their schools from December 17 to 20 as a token of support to the agitation against the division of the State. Students and the other sections resorted to a similar form of protests in Bhimavaram, Narsapuram, Palacole and Tadepalligudem. The government was forced to defer the half yearly examinations scheduled to begin on Wednesday.
