HYDERABAD: TJAC chairman Prof M Kodandaram, whose second leg of Amaraveerula Sphoorti Yatra will tour Rajanna Sircilla district — bastion of IT minister KT Rama Rao, would focus on problems being faced by handloom weavers and beedi workers. In the first leg, he toured erstwhile Medak district represented by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and irrigation minister T Harish Rao and brought out issues of irrigation and land acquisition to the fore.
The second leg of yatra will start on Saturday from Secunderabad Martyr’s memorial and will go on till Monday in Rajanna Sircilla. TJAC leaders, who discussed about the yatra on Friday, said that they will hold a public meeting on the last day of the yatra.
“We will analyse the conditions in the district. Sand mafia is rampant in the district and the local leaders are hand in glove with them,” Kodandaram told media.Reacting to criticism by TRS leaders against TJAC’s stand on Dindi water being diverted to Nalgonda district, Kodandaram said the TRS leaders and retired engineers should do an inspection of Dindi project rather than holding press meets to criticise him.
TJAC to campaign against drugs Taking serious view of the rampant use of drugs in the city, which came to light during the recent raids, Kodandaram said the TJAC will campaign against the drug menace. “Students should keep themselves away from drugs,” Kodandaram appealed and said the drug mafia can be curbed effectively if the police department functions effectively.
