Rajahmundry: Visalandhra Mahasabha (VM) urged people not to allow political leaders into Samaikyandhra movement which is being carried out voluntarily. The Mahasabha opined that the State would remain united only if people’s representatives from Seemandra tendered their resignations. President and secretary of VM Nalabolu Chakravarthi and Srinivasa Reddy spoke to the media at Rajahmundry Press Club on Sunday.
Representatives of VM called upon the people not to handover the cause of united Andhra to political parties. They have made it clear that there are no differences between the people of the State and the agitation is going on only between separatist and united forces. They expressed doubts that the political leaders might backstab the movement.
They urged the people not to trust either TDP which has changed its stance from two-eyes to one eye or the YSRCP which has changed its position in favour of Samaikyandhra in the last minute. They observed that the Congress high command is pursuing the British policy of ‘Divide and Rule’. They called upon the people to reject the bifurcation decision taken by Mrs Sonia Gandhi for the coronation of Rahul Gandhi. They found fault with Union ministers Chiranjeevi, Kavuri Sambasiva Rao, Purandeswari and Pallam Raju for giving priority to their posts by backstabbing Telugu people. They questioned Rajahmundry MP Vundavalli Arun Kumar for keeping mum over Samaikyandhra movement after conducting several meetings in support of Samaikyandhra.
They objected to the linking of Alipiri incident which was the handiwork of handful of people with Samaikyandhra movement. They demanded release of Samaikyandhra leaders who were arrested.
Several programmes were taken up at Rajahmundry as a part of Samaikyandhra agitation that pulled a large crowd on Sunday. A bus yatra taken up by Visalandhra Mahasabha (VM) members got a rousing welcome by Rajahmundry Womens’ Committee, Journalists JACs of twin Godavari districts and JAC of Chamber of Commerce. Advocates, APNGOs and employees of RTC and Municipal Corporation continued their stir while the fast-unto-death of YSRCP youth leaders Polu Kiran Mohan Reddy and Gurram Goutam entered 5th day on Sunday. Their condition started deteriorating.
Noted artist Guvvala Kennedy exhibited his paintings in support of Samaikyandhra and used his brush, paints and canvas for spot painting at Anam Kala Kendram on Sunday. Members of APNGOA, Journalists and Advocate JACs and artists from different organisations came to Kala Kendram to see the exhibition titled, ‘Rangu Padindi’, which Mr. Kennedy said is a result of bifurcation.
Rajahmundry Womens’ Committee senior member Akula Bhagyalakshmi, Chandra Kala, Veluri Rajani along with 50 other women extended their support, when the VM leaders reached Kotagummam to meet Chamber JAC leaders Madduri Siva Subba Rao and Nandepu Srinivas. Advocates JAC Seemandhra co-convener Muppalla Subbarao hugged the Telangana region members who came in support of Samaikyandhra.
Journalists’ JAC convener G Bhushan Babu, advisor VVS Krishna Kumar, Veteran Journalist Chintaloori Gopalarao, Vadrevu Diwakar, Abraham Lincoln, Ntv Srinivas, Hari Ganesh, Kaladhar and Janakiram gave roses to VM members at the Press Club to express their solidarity to their bus yatra.
A new dance ballet ‘Kinkini Ravali’ was enacted by traditional child artistes from dance master Sappa Durga Prasad Temple Dance School at Anam Kala Kendram on Sunday. About 200 artistes in traditional dance attire also participated in this programme from various other schools. RTC Employees Union took out rally from Rajahmundry depot and covered main centres in the city. NSUI youth performed mock funeral of KCR and other Congress leaders near Y-Junction.
