Pawan plans padayatras on NH
The Jana Sena Party has decided to take a plunge into agitation mode for Special Category Status. It has called for peaceful padayatras with participation by people on national highways and state highways across the state on April 6.
Vijayawada: The Jana Sena Party has decided to take a plunge into agitation mode for Special Category Status. It has called for peaceful padayatras with participation by people on national highways and state highways across the state on April 6.
Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan decided on the agitation after discussing the idea with CPI and CPM state secretaries, K Ramakrishna and P Madhu, at Jana Sena Party office here on Wednesday.
For a change, one could see Pawan Kalyan doing padayatra on the national highway in Vijayawada while the cadres of Jana Sena and the two Left parties would take up similar yatras in other districts.
"People feel that they are betrayed. They want to express their protest in this form," Pawan Kalyan said. "The BJP government has failed in conducting the Lok Sabha in an orderly fashion deliberately so that the no confidence motion could not be taken up for discussion," the three leaders said.
"This is a conspiracy against the people of Andhra Pradesh and a blow to democracy," the leaders said. Instead of fighting with the Centre, the TDP and YSRC were fighting with each other for leadership position, forgetting that in the process they were undermining the interests of the people, they said.
After April 6 padayatras, meetings would be organised by Jana Sena and the Left parties in Anantapur, Ongole and Vizianagaram with intellectuals on the SCS issue. "We will take our agitation forward in a phased manner and announce the future plan in due course," they said.
