Hyderabad: Seeking to evolve a new strategy in connection with the decades-long Telangana movement, the Telangana Communist Party will be organising its Fourth State-level Mahasabha on March 20 and 21, here.
Speaking to the media here on Friday, the State general secretary, Mr Sudamalla Venkataswamy said that a public meeting would be held at 12 noon on March 20 at the Indira Park and the mahasabha meetings would be held the following day i.e March 21.
Mr Venkatswamy alleged that whenever the Telangana movement was about to reach its peak stage, the affluent sections from the Seemandhra region, who have vested interests here have been somehow impeding it over the last 50 years. Extending the Communist Party’s support to the “Millenium March” to be held on March 10, he called upon the party activists to take direct participation in it. He also requested the State government to take a decision while keeping in view the interests of the Intermediate students, as they have public examination on that day.
Mr Venkatswamy also said that the underprivileged sections in the region would not derive any benefit from the formation of a mere geographical Telangana State. He said that lakhs of people from the Seemandhra region who got employment here through illegal means should be sent back and the land in some lakhs of acres that was in the grab of affluent Andhra people should be confiscated and distributed among the landless Telangana poor.
The Andhra Pradesh Goa Freedom Fighters Association president, Mr M V Srihari, member on the Party’s executive committee, Mr Shoaib, State counselor of the party, Mr P Maheshwar, a member on the City committee, Mr Das and leader of the party’s Medak District unit, Mr Pochanna, were also present.
