Andhra Pradesh Rythu Sangham called upon the farmers in the state to extend solidarity to the Left Parties ‘power’ struggle on March 14, by participating in the agitation.

APRS office bearers, who met at Rythu Bhavan here Saturday, resolved to support the Left agitation. They found fault with the government for failing to provide the promised 7- hour power and said now the farmers were hardly getting four hours.
