TIRUPATI: The coming four months would see massive campaign in support of separate statehood for the four districts of Rayalaseema.

According to Rayalaseema Parirakshana Samithi (RPS) founder Byreddy Rajasekhara Reddy, the activities of the RPS would be intensified.

Announcing a slew of activities to highlight what he called the injustice to Rayalaseema region, he said the people of the region are yearning for a separate state. He said successive governments have failed to address the needs of the region.

On Wednesday, RPS leaders have decided to launch a Bus Yatra from Kurnool on February 14. The yatra would culminate in Anantapur. Byreddy would lead the yatra and would highlight the issues such as unemployment and water scarcity.

“Though several chief ministers and the opposition leaders are from this region, the area continues to remain utterly underdeveloped,” said Rayalaseema Adhyayanala Samstha (RAS) president Bhuman.

The legal experts in the RPS and RAS have also questioned the AP government’s development plan. “Thousands of crores of investment for the construction of the capital city would not solve all the issues.,” said High Court lawyer Siva Reddy.
