Hyderabad: Strongly pitching for separate Telangana state, CPI general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy on Tuesday announced that his party would soon launch a 'T- movement' by uniting all pro-Telangana forces. Addressing at a public meeting organised on the last day of the two-day party's State Council at Yadagirigutta in Nalgonda district, he said that the left party resolved to actively take part in Telangana struggle by involving other T forces. Attributing the reason for the delay in the formation of Telangana to lack of unity among T- forces and the 'selfish agenda ' adopted by the political parties fighting for T state, Reddy slammed the Centre for dragging the issue even after thousands of youth sacrificed their lives for the cause of Telangana. "We strongly oppose packages for Telangana in the place of separate state as people of the region are craving for their own state," the CPI leader said. The ruling party would suffer heavily if it did not recognise the sentiments of the people of the region, he warned. Coming down heavily on the Congress led UPA �II on its failure in addressing people's plights including skyrocketing prices of essential commodities, natural calamities and farmers' woes, he accused the Centre of being responsible for the present economic crisis that landed the country in deep trouble. Strongly opposing the allotment of Bayyaram iron ore mines to Visakha Steel Plant, CPI State secretary K Narayana demanded the government to set-up the plant in Khammam district.
