He said that he was very happy to be at the meeting after witnessing struggle for Telangana throughout his life. He said that the struggle was not over and that the people of Telangana should now strive for developing Telangana region.
Kappara Prasad, in his emotional outburst, revealed that even though Andhra media persons didn’t oppose him when he flaunted the Union, very senior journalists in Telangana tried their best in opposing the organisation. He said that 77 cars were stalled by a Telangana Journalist who claims to champion the cause of Telangana, from reaching the venue of the meeting.
Srinivas Kasani said that Telangana Journalists Union should strive not only for rebuilding Telangana, but for achieving a new Telangana, free from feudalism. Srinivas Goud said that the most sorrowful moments in Telangana movement were experienced by journalists, as they had to go through the letters written by students who committed suicides for the cause.
A resolution with demands for land allotment, healthcare insurance for journalists’ parents, IDs for all journalists, Govt ads for self-employed small-media organisations, job security and provision of conveyance for women Journalists was passed. The journalists demanded for immediate tabling of T-bill in parliament and resolved to stand against the common capital status for Hyderabad.
