Vizianagaram: Samaikyandhra agitation took a powerful turn with ‘Lakshagala Garjana’ programme organised by local Siti Cable here on Friday. A huge crowd of people gathered at Kota Junction to raise slogans like ‘Jai Samaikyandhra’. The streets echoed the slogans in favour of united AP.
The programme was inaugurated by Siti Cable MD M Srinivasa Rao. A huge rally was taken out at Kota Junction. It moved via Three Laterns, Ghantasthalam Junction and Gurajada Apparao Junction to reach RTC complex.
Addressing a public meeting, the Samaikyandhra leaders said that it is a movement by the people and cannot be stopped. A few political forces have disrupted the peaceful atmosphere of the State by raising the Telangana issue, they said. The Congress party has cooperated with these forces, they added. Just to make Rahul Gandhi prime minister differences have been created among the Andhra Pradesh people, they said. KCR and his family members have auctioned the feelings of the Telangana people for their own selfish ends, they added.
The Siti Cable MD said that the agitation will be further intensified. Before the people’s anger bursts, the Congress High Command should observe this issue, he said. No decision can be taken against the wishes of the people, he added. More programmes will be taken up in the future, he said. He thanked everyone who participated in the Lakshagala Garjana.
Bandh at Parvathipuram
Normal life was paralysed at Parvatipuram in the district on Friday as Andhra Pradesh Non-Gazetted Officers’ Association (APNGOA) called for a 72-hour bandh on Friday. All private and government schools were closed. The activists blocked all national highways coming from the Agency area including the Andhra-Odisha main road. With this, trade transactions between Parvathipuram and other areas were hit. Teachers mobbed Parvathipuram MLA Savarapu Jayamani. They demanded him to join the stir. Nearly 10,000 students took to the streets and raised slogans in favour of Samaikyandhra at Gajapatinagar. There was a traffic jam up to five km. Students and teachers took up protest programmes at Kurupam. Activists of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) staged a silent demonstration at Srungavarapukota.
