MLA and former Mayor on fast unto death from today
Kadapa: The Samaiky- andhra-Joint Action Committee (JAC) in the district has decided to intensify their struggle to keep the State united. The people are joining spontaneously in the agitation to prevent bifurcation. The Rayachoti MLA Srikanth Reddy and former Kadapa Mayor Ravindranath Reddy will begin a fast unto death at the Collectorate on Monday. The leaders here want to step up the pressure on the UPA government to make it rescind its decision to bifurcate the State. They firmly believe only by applying pressure tactics, the government could be brought down on its knees.
To strengthen the movement against the creation of Telangana state, the APNGOs, the employees of APSRTC, commercial taxes, and health will strike work from the midnight of August 12, which would change the very nature of the agitation. The S–JAC said that it would also not hesitate to organize rail roko and rasta roko to achieve their purpose. They want to take the movement to the grassroots level and spread it among the villages by chalking out a strategy, irrespective of their political affiliations and they also passed a resolution to that effect.
They decided to strengthen the movement in the district. To take the movement forward in the villages, the former ZPTCs, and MPTCs and sarpanchs have been roped in. They have also decided to collect Re.1 as donation from each house and one member from each family would be enrolled to join the movement.
Meanwhile, the resignations of Y S Jaganmohan Reddy from the Lok Sabha and Y S Vijayamma, has given an opportunity to several members of the YSR Congress Party to participate directly in the agitation holding the party flag and it has given a boost to the party cadres to take part in the agitation more aggressively.
Massive protests have become the order of the day in several places in the district with people from different sections of the society taking part in them enthusiastically. The RTC workers held a silent rally and sat on their knees at the statue of BR Ambedkar at the cross roads. The retired army personnel also took part in the agitation. Speaking to the media here on Sunday, the army personnel said that they would take the movement as a prestigious issue and go out all the way to make it successful.
Dr. V Sivarama Krishna Rao, Chairman of AP State Medical Services & Infrastructure Development Corporation resigned for his post supporting unitted State. He extended his support to relay protests held at Porumamilla on Sunday.
