HYDERABAD: Telangana Joint Action Committee chairman M Kodandaram too has found fault with the state government for the way it organised the World Telugu Conference. “The Prapancha Telugu Mahasabhalu were organised without proper direction. I don’t find any difference between the one that concluded two days ago and the earlier ones organised by Seemandhra rulers in the erstwhile united state in support of the united state. Moreover, the present government completely ignored the Telangana poets and folk singers like Ande Sri, Gadar and Vimalakka who actively took part in the statehood movement. At any rate, the conference was not organised in accordance with the expectations of the people of the state,” he said while speaking with mediapersons here on Thursday.
The TJAC chairman said the government was not taking any initiative to resolve the ongoing tussle between Adivasis and Lambadas over the reservation issue.Earlier, Kodandaram met Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi (MRPS) founder Manda Krishna Madiga and his followers at the Chanchalguda jail where they were lodged for organising demonstrations demanding that the government take steps for categorising SCs.
Coming to the rescue of Krishna, Kodandaram said that the government was not allowing anybody to stage dharnas or organise protests in Hyderabad. The government, instead of resolving the problems being faced by people, had been arresting the protesters and sending them to jail, he alleged and suggested that the chief minister lead an all-party delegation to Delhi to resolve the issue of categorisation of SCs.
