The Andhra Pradesh Non Gazetted Officers (APNGOs) have chalked out a series of agitational programmes to keep Andhra Pradesh united and announced that they would not compromise under any circumstances.
Addressing a press conference after an emergency meeting of the APNGOs here on Saturday, APNGO president Ashok Babu, general secretary Chandrasekhar Reddy and others said that they were ready for any sacrifice for keeping the state united.
They decided to extend support to the political parties, which would fight for united Andhra Pradesh. They said they would launch agitations to mount pressure on the UPA government to withdraw its decision to bifurcate the state. They said the Congress high command was thinking of bifurcating the state due to its vote bank politics. People will give a fitting reply to the Congress in the ensuing polls if they propose to divide the state, the NGO leaders said.
As part of the agitational programme, the APNGOs and students will hold protest demonstrations in front of Seemandhra MPs’ houses on July 29 in support of united Andhra. A massive public meeting would be held in Tirupati on July 30 in which important leaders would participate.
On August 1, they will gherao Seemandhra ministers and on the following day APNGOs and Samaikhyandhra JAC leaders would besiege the houses of public representatives from Andhra and Rayalaseema regions.
Massive rallies followed by protest dharnas will be organised on August 5 in all district headquarters and explain the people about the ills if the state is divided.
