Khammam: Telangana Mala Mahanadu (TMM) district unit president Kandula Upendar here on Tuesday appealed to the people belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes to participate in large numbers in the ‘Chalo Delhi’ programme on August 8 in protest against the apex court judgment on SC, ST Prevention of Atrocities Act-1989.
The TMM activists released a poster of ‘Chalo Delhi’ programme and held a meeting under the leadership of Jonnalagadda Naveen at the TMM office here.
