The Communist Party of India (CPI), which has a strong presence in the Telangana region has started the Telangana Poru Yatra demanding the immediate passage of statehood bill in Parliament.
The Telangana Poru Yatra was flagged off by CPI state secretary K Narayana on 5th June at a public meeting organized in Bhadrachalam town. The Yatra, which has passed through Kothagudem, Khammam and Warangal towns is passing through Mothkur, Atmakur, Yadagirigutta and Bhongir towns today.
After traveling through other towns like Valigonda, Chityala, Narketpally, Nakirekal, Suryapet, Huzurnagar, Munugode, Devarakonda and Mahabubnagar, the Yatra will conclude with a massive public meeting at Hyderabad on 15th July.
Public response to Telangana Poru Yatra is impressive with local Telangana JACs extending full cooperation by organizing meetings, and rallies in towns through which the Yatra is passing through.
Active participation of parties like CPI, which has a large dedicated cadre base in Telangana will immensely strengthen the statehood agitation.
