Tirupati : The advocates in Chittoor town conducted a motor cycle rally on Monday and extended solidarity to Samaikyandhra agitation. They shouted slogans against Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and the TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao.
The Congress functionaries went on a relay hunger strike which drew lot of support from the local people. The advocates expressed their support to the fast.
Chittoor MLA CK Babu paid a visit to the fasting camp and interacted with local cadres and expressed his solidarity. As no one from either Andhra Pradesh or from Seemandhra region was in the committee set up under AK Antony, how would they know about the problems faced by the people of this region, he asked.
Several teachers chalked out a strategy to intensify the agitation by involving the students directly into the agitation.
They held meeting in a private school on Monday for which the Teachers MLC from Visakhapatnam Mr. Srinivasulu Naidu attended and resolved to support the Samaikyandhra agitation.
Though the teachers have unanimously extended support to this agitation, but assured to participate directly into this after handing over strike notice to government. Perhaps all the teachers will join this agitation from Friday. The MLC said that the movement would get intensified with the participation of students and the teachers.
He said that the Congress High Command should have taken the aspirations and sentiments of the people of Rayalseema and coastal Andhra before taking a decision on the Telangana statehood issue. In Srikalahasthi, the temple staff and priests took part in Samaikyandhra agitation and rallied in all four ‘Mada Streets’ of the temple by holding Samaikyandhra flexi banners. The YSRCP local unit also held massive rallies in the town and faulted the decision on dividing the state.
An agricultural farmer E Venkatachala Naidu began his 36-hour fast at Gandhi statue on Monday morning. It may be recalled that he took pledge seven years ago not to wear a shirt till the government-run Vijaya Milk Dairy was reopened and he has stood by his words till today. Now, he took up the issue of Samaikyandhra and began a 36-hour fast alone.
