Friends of Jampala Chandra Sekhar Prasad, a student leader and an active member of PDSU who was killed in a police encounter in 1975, are conducting Jampala’s memorial meeting and a seminar on ‘People’s Movement and Present Challenges’ on November 4 at Haritha Gardens in Khammam.

Speaking at a press conference here on  Saturday, Telangana political JAC chairman Prof M Kodandaram said Gautam Navlakha, eminent journalist, human rights activist and former associate editor of EPW would be the chief guest for the event.

Khammam has been chosen as the venue for the event because Jampala was killed in an encounter in Yellandu mandal in Khammam district in 1975 during a movement against the emergency in the country (from June 26, 1975 to March 1977).

Releasing a poster for the memorial meeting, Kodandaram said, the event is intended to provide inspiration from Jampala’s life to the ongoing people’s movement.

George Reddy, the founder of PDSU who was also killed by some forces, was the man who came up with ideologies for a true democracy and  Jampala walked in his footsteps, said Kodandaram.

MLC Chukka Ramaiah, social activists Prof Rama Melkote, K Lalitha, P Chalapathi Rao and other friends of Jampala also spoke.
