Tirupati: The heat of Samaikyandhra agitation is not even leaving temple town Tirumala. As all the unions of RTC are participating in the indefinite strike of APNGOs which starts from August 12 midnight, all the buses will stop plying. Earlier, Tirumala was exempted from strikes but now, no bus will go uphill.

Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s remarks sparked rage both in Seemandhra and Telangana. Kiran Kumar Reddy was criticised for shredding crocodile tears after everything was over. Chandragiri YSRCP leader Chevireddy Bhasker Reddy arranged a poster with CM as crocodile in the centre of Tirupati, which was later removed by the police.

Local MLA Bhumana Karunakar Reddy held a dharna here on Saturday. He alleged that the CM was well aware of the State’s division three months earlier and it is pitiable that now he was giving statements that he (CM) is against the State’s division. Rallies, protests, agitations and relay hunger strikes are continuing in the entire Chittoor district.

Anantapuramu: Bandh continued on Saturday also, the 11th day of Samaikyandhra agitation in Anantapuramu district. All the shops were closed and RTC buses remained in the depots. All the employees, students, lecturers, lawyers and others alike took to the agitation and staged protests. SK University students held a novel protest with a procession of buffaloes which were carrying the effigies of Central Ministers Kavuri, Chiranjeevi, Kotla, JD Seelam, Purandeswari, Killi Krupa Rani and Panabaka Lakshmi. The effigies were later burned. Dharmavaram, Hindupur, Proddatur and other areas echoed with Samaikyandhra slogans.

Nellore: TDP leaders, cadres and activists held a massive rally in support of a united State in Nellore on Saturday. Party polit bureau member Somireddy Chandrasekhar Reddy criticised that Congress party had divided the Telugu speaking people, who have been living united since 60 years. The Congress rule pushed the State 30 years backwards in development and it will go back another 50 years if Telangana is given, he added.

Everywhere in Nellore district effigies of Sonia Gandhi and KCR were being burnt. Meanwhile, rallies and protests are going on. Rickshaws and auto unions held a massive rally in Kavali. Meanwhile, journalists are continuing their relay hunger strike in Udayagiri and Vinjamur.
