Hyderabad: The agitation in support of Samaikyandhra continued unabated in all the 13 districts of Andhra and Rayalaseema regions of the State even as government employees led by APNGOs Association held a massive ‘Save Andhra Pradesh’ rally in Lal Bahadur Stadium here on Saturday. The polytechnic staff decided to join the movement by striking work from 11 September.

The police on Saturday foiled the indefinite fast undertaken by MLA Silpa Mohan Reddy in support of Samaikyandhra at Nandyal, Kurnool district, on the sixth day. In Tirupati, supporters of Samaikyandhra and TTD employees broke 1008 coconuts at Alipiri praying for the success of the ‘Save Andhra’ rally in Hyderabad. Students took out a huge rally in the city and squatted on the road, leading to traffic disruptions. Taking advantage of the movement, vendors of Ganesh idols sold Ganesh idols with Samaikyandhra ribbons decorated on the trunk of the idols. In Bhimavaram town, college students protested by pedaling rickshaws.

Meanwhile, Seemandhra Polytechnic Employees announced in Kakinada on Saturday that they would go on strike from September 11 in support of Samaikyandhra. They said the employees had attended duties all these days for the convenience of students attending EAMCET counseling.

In Nuzivid, Krishna district, agitators wearing KCR and Sonia masks expressed their resentment at the move to bifurcate the State. The medical employees, along with doctors and nurses, boycotted work in King George Hospital. More than 2,000 members of staff took out a rally from the KGH main gate. Later, they formed a human chain, disrupting vehicular traffic for more than an hour.
