Hyderabad: The CPM leaders, who were on fast for the last six-days demanding the State government to solve the 44-problems faced by the people, have withdrawn their stir today, following an assurance from the Government to resolve the problems of the Daliths and Girijans. The CPM Politburo member Ms Brinda Karat has given lemon juice to the members who were on fast at Indira Park.
The State CPM secretary Mr BV Raghavulu, State executive members Mr G Nagaiah, Mr S Veeraiah and State Committee member Dr M Baburao were on the fast since March 17.

The Ministers assured Mr Mr Raghavulu that the government would respond positively on the problems related to Daliths and Girijans and it was ready to solve them. Accepting the government’s offer Mr Raghavulu said that he would withdraw his fast at Indira Park, where he launched it. Mr Raghavulu and the Ministers reached Indira Park Dharna Chowk, where already thousands of CPM activists across the State gathered.
Addressing the gathering, Mr Raghavulu said that the government has assured to resolve the problems and agreed to initiate steps to solve the problems.
