Telangana activist and MLC K Dileep Kumar has called upon the people of the region to strengthen the newly-formed Telangana Rashtriya Lok Dal to intensify the movement to achieve statehood.

A large number of youth belonging to several political parties including YRSCP joined the TRLD at a meeting held here on Saturday. Before joining the new party,  the youth paid rich tributes to the Telangana martyrs at the Gun Park opposite the Assembly building.

Addressing the gathering, he said  Telangana could be created only through political process. Keeping this in mind, people should strengthen the TRLD in the region. The RLD, which is led by Union minister Ajit Singh and has six MPs from Uttar Pradesh,is fighting for creation of smaller states.

“Even after 12 years the TRS has failed to emerge as an alternative political party in the region and has won just two Lok Sabha and 17 Assembly seats, leaving a political vacuum in 15 Lok Sabha and 101 Assembly constituencies in the region. The TRLD intends to fill this void and appeals to all sections of Telangana people to strengthen and support it.’’

Dileep Kumar criticised AICC general secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad’s remark that bifurcating the state was not as easy that dividing Bihar, Madhya Pradesh or Uttar Pradesh. Azad did not have the right to visit Hyderabad without resolving the Telangana issue, he said.

TRLD working president Md Riyaz, general secretary Seshagri Rao, youth wing president Muralidhar Rao and several other leaders attended.
