Telangana Achievable Through People's Stir: Gadar
Warangal (AP) | Oct 05, 2010
Revolutionary folk artist and balladeer Gadar, who is floating a front
to fight for separate Telangana, today stressed on undertaking
movement for achieving the statehood goal, but said his outfit would
be a "political force".
Gadar, who has been laying emphasis on adequate political
representation to the backward classes and Dalits, said here he
believed the statehood goal would be achieved through people's
agitation rather than contesting elections.
He, however, said 'Telangana Praja Front', proposed to be launched
formally on October 9, would be a "political force" as statehood is a
The front is proposed to be launched by bringing together 56 Joint
Action Committees (JACs) representing various sections of the society.
He alleged that parties like TRS have failed to sustain the agitation
after the Centre announced the decision to form separate Telangana on
December 9 last year and appointed Srikrishna Committee subsequently.
Gadar's announcement to launch the outfit triggered expectation that
it would emerge as an alternative to TRS which has hitherto dominated
the Telangana politics.
Ruling Congress and Opposition TDP leaders have welcomed Gadar's
announcement, while TRS has remained tight- lipped on the development.
