Naxals to fight against anti-Telangana parties

HYDERABAD : The Communist Party of India (Maoist) and the Janashakti have called upon the people of Telangana to launch an agitation to thwart the day-to-day programmes of political leaders belonging to parties that were anti-Telangana.
In a joint statement on Thursday, the Maoist North Telangana Special Zone Committee secretary Chandranna and CPI (Marxist-Leninist) Godavari Valley Area Committee secretary Bharat lashed out at the Congress for its decision to constitute a second States Reorganisation Commission (SRC).
        They accused the Congress, Telugu Desam Party and the Communist Party of India (Marxist) of working for the interests of the rich people from Andhra region. The standards of living of people of Telangana had deteriorated over the years due to the continued exploitation by people from the Andhra region.
        They said the Congress was using the Telangana slogan to regain power and cheated people by claiming that it was concerned about the separate Statehood demand. The talk of SRC was nothing but a Congress conspiracy to deny a separate State.
        The leaders demanded that all the Congress Ministers, MPs and MLAs from Telangana should immediately resign as they had failed to fulfil their promise of creating a separate Telangana. They should also oppose the leadership of Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy and pressure the Congress leaders till they dropped the move to constitute the SRC.
        They called on the people to prevent the Congress leaders from touring Telangana. People should take inspiration from the 'Simon Go Back' movement of the freedom struggle and launch a new slogan 'second SRC go back'.
