Politicians and people’s organisation members from the city on Friday condemned the bomb blast in Hyderabad leading to the death of 14 persons and injury of several others at Dilsukhnagar on Thursday. The BJP activists tried in vain to enforce the bandh call made by its State committee. Shopkeepers in Besant Road resisted when the BJP activists tried to make them down their shutters. There was a scuffle between the party activists and shopkeepers. Meanwhile, the police took the activists into custody.

CPI District secretary Akkineni Vanaja and City secretary Donepudi Shankar led a rally to condemn the killings.

Vijayawada Parliamentary Constituency Youth Congress President Devineni Avinash along with Tummala Padma and activists of the organisation took out a rally from Benz Circle to N.T.R. Circle to register their protest against the bomb blasts. Condoling the death of innocent people, he said steps should be taken to crush terrorism. Members of the Insurance Corporation employee’s Union took out a silent rally from the Swarnalok Complex in Governorpet. City Branch Three secretary Ch. Kaladhar condoled the death of 16 persons in the bomb blasts.

Members of the Gandhi Global Family organised a peace rally to the Sub-Collector’s office. Organisation state director Masabathula Srinivas said that Gandhism is the only path the country should follow.
