Rajahmundry: “Farmers of Seemandhra should understand the dangers that would emerge due to the bifurcation of the State. They should join the agitation in support of Samaikyandhra,” former minister Vadde Sobhanadreeswara Rao said here on Saturday.
He said only the Second States Reorganisation Committee (SRC) would solve the present problem in the wake of demands for separate States from several regions of the country and demanded the Congress to take back its decision to divide the State. He said there was no clarity in the decision taken by the CWC on the bifurcation of the State.
Addressing the media, Mr Rao said the Krishna and Godavari deltas would become a desert if bifurcation took place. Irrigation water problem could be overcome through interlinking of rivers if Polavaram project was completed, he said and lamented that Telangana had joined neighbouring States like Odisha and Chhattisgarh in opposing the Polavaram project.
Criticising the Congress for taking for announcing Telangana with Hyderabad as capital, the former minister found fault with all the political parties that gave their consent to Telangana for not holding discussions on the recommendations of the Sri Krishna Committee, which had submitted a brilliant report on the repercussions of bifurcation.
Mr Rao made it clear that Seemandhra agitation had emerged from the people unlike the Telangana agitation, which was run by the KCR family from the money extorted from the pockets of Seemandhra businessmen.
Polytechnic staff to go on strike from Sept. 11
Kakinada: Giving an impetus to the Samaikyandhra movement, Seemandhra Polytechnic Employees’ JAC president Chandrasekhar announced here on Saturday that they would go on strike from September 11. He was the chief guest at a meeting organised by the Seemandhra Polytechnic employees.

The employees unanimously decided to serve strike notice on the government.
He said Polytechnic employees attended duties whenever necessary for the convenience of students attending the EAMCET counselling. Now, the employees would join the Samaikyandhra agitation, he said.
