Tirupati: Folk artistes from Chittoor district took out a rally on the main roads in temple city on Monday in support of their demands. Folk artistes in large numbers started rally from CPM office to NTR Circle where the rally culminated.
Later, they submitted a memorandum with their grievances to NTR statue. On this occasion Folk Artistes Association state leader P Yadagiri has demanded that state government should allocate Rs 500 crore in the budget to the cultural activities.
