The Telangana Jagruthi president K Kavitha said that awareness should be created among the rural women, youth about the culture and tradition of Telangana.

Speaking at a function organised by teachers’ union and members of Jagruthi in the district headquarters here on Sunday, Kavitha said that rural women and youth should be educated on the importance of separate Telangana.

Speaking to the media, Kavitha alleged that Congress leaders from Telangana made false promises on the separate statehood. “They say that the party high command would declare Telangana in one month and the very next day their state in-charge says that one month doesn’t necessarily mean 30 days. The Congress has been delaying this issue for many decades,” she said.

She said that the Congress has been often changing state in-charges. “Digvijay Singh says that his high command would soon declare Telangana but he too didn’t give an assured date,” she said.

Kavitha demanded the Congress led United Progressive Alliance to declare Telangana state with 10 districts as Hyderabad its capital. She said that awareness would be created in Telangana districts through Bathukamma festival.

“Many tribals in the district fell sick and died due to seasonal diseases but the government failed to provide pure drinking water,” she said.

However, the meeting was boycotted by the teachers organization related to Telangana unit. They alleged that all the posts are being given to TUTF organization leaders and others are ignored.
