PW urged to desist from using arms

HYDERABAD, JULY 24. Eight office-bearers of the Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC), have appealed to the People's War to desist from using arms, as indicated by some "discouraging reports emanating from PW quarters", after the Government's decision not to extend the ban on it. In a statement, they said the PW should not allow its functionaries to move around in villages fully armed, as the reports stated.

The general secretary, S. Indrasain Reddy, the secretaries --N. Shivram, S. P. Tiwari, T. Seshnarayan, Ch. Balraj and N. Nagabhushanam Goud -- and the joint secretaries, A. Bhaskar and J. Narsing Rao, signed the statement.
