Tirupati: All eyes of Samaikyandhra activists are now on the MPs and Union ministers from Seemandhra region. Their only demand is Samaikyandhra and the resignations of MPs and Union ministers. The demand grew more vocal as news about preparation of the cabinet note on Telangana surfaced in the media.
In this backdrop, the government medical employees and nursing students are staging series of protests by displaying the portraits of Tirupati MP Dr Chinta Mohan and TTD chairman Kanumuri Bapiraju. On Wednesday they staged protest at Sri Potti Sriramulu statue here and have broken 101 coconuts praying the God to give good sense to these two leaders. Again on Thursday they carried the posters of all Union ministers and MPs from the region, who were not participating in Samaikyandhra agitations, demanding their resignations.
The students and professors of Sri Venkateswara University also demanded their resignations and played Chess on Tirupati-Chittoor main road. The TDP functionaries also staged half-naked protests Krishnapuram Thana here and strongly demanded the TTD chairman Kanumuri Bapiraju to send his resignation in prescribed format through fax to Lok Sabha speaker. The TDP town president Bhaskar said that people won’t allow Kanumuri Bapiraju to leave Tirumala and Tirupati if he did not resign.
Samaikyandhra JAC leader Mabbu Chenga Reddy said that nobody knows the whereabouts of local MP Chinta Mohan as he could not be seen even in Lok Sabha also. “Certainly the people will teach a tough lesson to the MP in next general elections,” he said.
Unless the elected leaders resign from their posts and join the ongoing agitations to keep the State united, they don’t have moral right to come to people in future, many students observed.
