Addressing the gathering, former Minister and TRS senior leader Captain Laxmi Kantha Rao criticised the State Government for failing to keep its promise that all the cases would be withdrawn once the Sakala Janula Samme (general strike) was called off.
“The Union Government, at least, should abide by its promise and introduce a Telangana bill in the coming Parliament session. Otherwise, it will face the wrath of people in the days to come,” he cautioned.
TRS MLC Naradasu Laxman Rao alleged that the Seemandhra leaders had been deceiving people of the region for over the decades and they were trying to scuttle the process of carving out a Telangana state.
Despite some political parties led by the Seemandhra leaders hatching a conspiracy against the ongoing Telangana movement, the Telangana people are not in a position to fall in their trap and they are ready to teach a lesson to them,” he stated.
“No one can stop the Telangana movement with foisting cases and threatening the people. We will intensify the movement and will mount the pressure on the UPA Government until a categorical decision on bifurcation of the State is taken,” TRS MLA Koppula Eswar said.
