Kadapa: The Samaikyandhra agitation which is already intensified will now be more heightened with the strike of NGOs and revenue employees from Monday midnight in Kadapa district. Hunger strike by JAC since 12 days and by teachers since eight days at the Collectorate is going on uninterrupted.
Protesting against the State’s division, district officials banned the government programmes, Grievance Cell and Prajavani scheduled on Monday. They expressed solidarity by wearing black badges. The District Officials Union stated that they will also participate in the agitation as there is a need to keep the State united in view of the welfare of the State, employees and students’ future.
Samaikyandhra JAC leaders send the employees of Bhavishya Nidhi and LIC offices. Police restricted hundreds of farmers who were coming to Kadapa by tractors from Pulivendula road. Coming to know of this, JAC leaders entered into argument with the police to allow them into the city. They questioned the police as to why they are stopping the farmers who wanted to participate in the agitation peacefully. Police took the JAC leaders into custody.
Rayachoti MLA and YSRCP leader Gadikota Srikanth Reddy and Kadapa former mayor Ravindranath Reddy criticised that ruling party leaders are least bothered even though Seema is meting out injustice with the State’s division and the opposition Telugu Desam Party is playing dramas. YS Jaganmohan Reddy even though jailed, had resigned for the benefit of the public, they added. Both the leaders took up fast unto death at the Kadapa Collectorate from Monday against the State’s division. Earlier, they took out a rally and garlanded the statues of Potti Sriramulu and YS Rajasekhara Reddy.
The leaders declared that their fast unto death will continue till Congress Party takes back its decision on formation of separate Telangana. Along with senior leader YS Vivekananda Reddy YSRCP leaders and common people extended their support.
