Hyderabad: The government has decided to take steps to keep in check the proposed agitational programme ‘Vanta Vaarpu’ on the roads June 19, here.
The cited stir initiated by the Telangana Joint Action Committee formed part of the Telangana agitation and the JAC chose to block the roads in this fashion.
Director General of Police K Aravinda Rao, who attended a review meeting chaired by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy at the Secretariat on Wednesday told media persons that they would take care of it.
Home Minister P Sabitha Reddy and other officials also took part in the review meeting which was intended to take stock of the situation arising out of the proposed protest.
“It is not a serious issue,” Mr Aravinda Rao said and explained that the ‘Vanta Vaarpu’ would be a protest and that people shall not face any inconvenience due to it.
Still all measures and precautions would be taken to check the proposed ‘protest’ by the JAC.
The Chief Minister is understood to have instructed the top brass to spare none in maintaining the law and order effectively.
The meeting lasted nearly three hours.
Transport Minister Botsa Satyanarayana, who also emerged out of the said review meeting later had an informal meeting with the waiting media persons.
He is understood to have held discussions with the Chief Minister on several subjects but refused to divulge the details.
The Minister, who also holds the reigns of the Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee at this critical juncture, had been making several exercises as part of measures to strengthen the party in close coordination with the head of the government.
Sources said that the daily meeting of the Chief Minister and the party chief was a new arrangement to send signals to all concerned in the party.
It was also revealed that the new energetic and pragmatic incumbent Botsa Satyanarayana, unlike the immobile D Srinivas, as described, of the party was sufficiently given the High Command’s backing to specifically contain the dissent in the party.
It was said that the APCC chief has already begun acting as stipulated and extend moral support to the Chief Minister at a time when anti-Congress forces were trying to pull the legs of the latter.(INN)
