Rain plays spoilsport at CPUSI meeting

By Our Staff Reporter

MULUG (WARANGAL DT.), SEPT. 24. The sudden and heavy downpour disrupted the public meeting organised by the Communist Party of United States of India (CPUSI) -- Dalita Bahujana Sramika Vimukthi -- here on Friday.

The CPUSI planned to unveil a huge martyrs memorial and recall the sacrifices made by 131 cadres including its founder, M. Veeranna, who were killed in various encounters over the years. About 10,000 people had gathered from various mandals, particularly the agency areas of the district, for the meeting.

The meeting began an hour behind schedule as the invitees arrived late. As soon as the meeting began, there was a sudden downpour due to which people dispersed.

The songs and dance of the cultural troupe failed to hold them back.

Speaking on the occasion, the revolutionary writer, Varavara Rao, said on the day when the Oddugudem covert incident took place, he and Gaddar had given a consent letter to the Government willing to represent the People's War. He said except for the agenda -- public issues, land to the landless and human rights -- all others such as seventh clause were not so important.

He reminded that even the Union Home Minister, Shivraj Patil, did not object to the seventh clause and the State Government should not have any objection to arms being carried by naxalites.

Talks

He said the talks might begin in second week of October as the PW and other parties were busy with the proposed meeting at Hyderabad. During talks, the PW and the Janashakti would ask for talks at the regional-level for which the venue and agenda would be fixed during the second phase of talks.
