Hyderabad,: Telangana Freedom Fighters Forum (For Formation of Telangana State), which is working out the modalities for bringing together all the political parties, organisations, forums, institutions and prominent individuals to achieve their goal of separate Telangana state, has convened a general meeting of all concerned, at Prakasham hall, Gandhi Bhavan here at 11 am on April 22.
Forum Chairman Mr Konda Lakshman Bapuji, Treasurer Mr B Sitaramaiah, Executive members Dr Baburao Varma and Mr Desini China Mallayya, speaking to the media here today, said that as there was lack of unity among the champions of separate Telangana state cause, the formation of separate state was delayed , and hence the Freedom Fighters were keen on uniting all the forces. The first informal meeting of the Forum was held here on April 14, where it was decided to personally contact all other like-minded unions and organisations of Telangana protagonists and urge upon them to join this unity move by giving top priority to the issue of formation of Telangana state keeping aside all other matters. Another informal meeting would be held on April 17, as a prelude to the final meeting on April 22.
At the meeting on April 17, the progress achieved in the direction of uniting all the concerned would be reviewed, and the future course of action would be decided, which would be placed before the April 22 meeting. The Forum appealed to one and all Telangana protagonists to demonstrate their sincerity by giving top priority to achieve the goal of separate state by associating themselves with the unity, without waiting for receipt of formal invitation.(NSS)
