In a statement released on behalf of the PW politburo, Prakash urged the people to wage a struggle for debating the naxalites' agenda and not naxalism. He said that the naxalite agenda, which was democratic and revolutionary in nature, should be placed before the people.
The statement claimed that the TDP headed by Chief Minister, N.Chandrababu Naidu, had expressed lack of confidence in its own Government by dissolving the Assembly and seeking a mandate. Making naxalism the main agenda in this election was a significant aspect of the country's history.
He said that the TDP in Andhra Pradesh and the BJP at the Centre were portraying naxalism as a ruse with a view to diverting people's attention from the growing political, economic and social crises and to take forward privatisation and globalisation policies at the instance of capitalist nations. It should be understood that the TDP is planning to brutally suppress all the just struggles of the people in the name of curbing naxalism.
Prakash said by stating that naxalism is blocking development, the Government is targeting the People's War "whose sole agenda was people's welfare." While urging the people to question the TDP to state which industry the naxalites had prevented, he asked them to chase away the party leaders, by pointing out that the "bankrupt capitalist policies of the TDP" were responsible for closure of industries.
The PW leader charged that Mr.Chandrababu Naidu had made naxalism his main agenda in the elections in order to defend his "fascist" rule in the manner in which Hitler burnt the German Reichstag building to sustain his fascist regime. He claimed that the TDP Government is mobilising Central forces in a big way to hold the elections under the shadow of a gun and rig them. He urged the people to fight the conspiracy and dash the dreams of "Chandrababu's TDP-communal, fascist BJP."
Supporting the demand for separate Telangana, he said the people should demand the TRS to spell out its stand on the thousands of acres belonging to landlords now held by the people as well distribution of forest land as pattas. Prakash asked the Left parties to explain why they were opposed to a separate Telangana, when Hindi-speaking people were living in six States.
