HYDERABAD: The family members of Telangana martyrs would contest in at least four Assembly segments in Telangana region in the forthcoming byelections.
‘Amaraveerula Kutumbala Rashtra Ikya Vedika’ has announced four of its candidates. Bandari Adilakshmi (Kollapur), P Tagore (Station Ghanpur), B Uppalayya (Kamareddy) and B Devsingh (Adilabad) will contest the byelections, Vedika state president M Raghuma Reddy said.
Earlier, he along with members of the martyrs’ families, submitted a memorandum to the DGP stating that the provocative statements made by TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao and TRS MLA T Harish Rao were responsible for the suicides of their kin. They wanted the government to forfeit the assets of Rao and others and distribute the same among the martyrs’ kin.
Later, they called on TDP senior MLA Motkupalli Narasimhulu at NTR Bhavan and requested the TDP to back the candidatures of Vedika candidates. As TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu was not available, they decided to meet him later.
