SANGAREDDY: Land oustees who have been protesting for the past 40 days to oppose the construction of Mallanna Sagar reservoir have now decided to organise a massive public meeting in chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's Gajwel constituency. A date for the meeting to press for their demands will be finalised once TJAC convenor Prof Kodandaram returns from his foreign tour.
The Mallanna Sagar Porata Samithi have also decided to invite political party representatives to the meeting. Samithi members have already met public unions who have agreed to attend the meeting. Earlier this month, Prof. Kodandaram had visited Etigadda Kistapur, the epicentre of the protests, and demanded the state government to compensate the villagers as per Land Acquisition Act, 2013.
He also announced the support of TJAC for the protesting oustees.
Meanwhile, former TDP MP S Ramachandra Reddy extended his support to the protest.
Speaking on the occasion he said that it was not right for the government to go against the will of the public and added that Telangana people had voted this government for their welfare and government should work towards it.
