Srikakulam: Activists of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) organised a motorcycle rally here on Wednesday. On this occasion, they said that party president Chandrababu Naidu had elevated Hyderabad city to international standards. If the State is divided and if Hyderabad does not belong to Seemandhras, the latter will stand to lose, they said.
Stating that Hyderabad has the highest revenue in the State, they said that it is the base for employees, the unemployed and the educated. It is not right to snatch away such a foundation by some, they pointed out.
Charging the Congress of political ends in dividing the State, they said that the decision was made only at the CWC meeting and not by any committee appointed by the Centre. It is not right to divide the State without clarity on issues like sharing of water resources, future of Seemandhra people and employment opportunities.
The party is therefore agitating in accordance with the sentiments of the Seemandhra people, they added. Primary school children boycotted classes and joined the agitation. They staged rasta roko on the national highway at Etcherla. They stopped movement of vehicles and raised slogans like ‘Jai Samaikyandhra’.
Activists of the YSR Congress Party also took out a massive motorcycle rally. They said that they were fighting for united AP and all the party members from leaders to the workers were dedicated towards this goal. Aged persons and pensioners took out a rally from Potti Sreeramulu junction to Seven Roads junction here, raising slogans. At the end of the rally they formed a human chain. They organised cultural programmes at local Bapuji Kalamandir. Students of Degree and Engineering colleges in the town took out rallies and burnt Sonia and KCR effigies.
At Somapeta, Kanchili and Baruva a bandh was observed in support of Samaikyandhra. All party activists organised bandh and took out rallies at Bhamini and Hiramandalam mandals. Hundreds of autos took out a huge rally in their vehicles at Pathapatnam and Kanchili villages.
Meanwhile, the bandh by NGOs entered the second day on Wednesday. As a result 495 buses from five depots in the district were confined to the depots. The NGOs’ Association leaders said an exemption was made for flag hoisting on Thursday. The agitation will continue after the function.
