Venue of talks to be kept secret

By Our Staff Reporter

NALGONDA, OCT. 8. The State Government has decided against disclosing the possible venue of the proposed talks with the leaders of the People's War and Jana Shakti on October 15 in Hyderabad, as a precautionary measure.

The Home Minister, K. Jana Reddy, told The Hindu on Friday that the Government had selected a venue in addition to Jubilee Hall and Assembly (premises). "I don't want to disclose the third venue. But, I can say that it is in Hyderabad. Talks will be held at one of these venues,'' he revealed.

Foolproof security

Asked whether the police were prepared to provide necessary protection for the leaders from anti-naxal gangs being operated by some renegades like Nayeem, Mr. Reddy said foolproof security arrangements would be made for them. To another question, he said that the PW had not invited him for its meeting to be held at Guttikonda Bilam of Guntur district on October 11. Reacting to the PW's decision to observe black day on October 15, the day the Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, would to lay the foundation stone of the project, he said, "How can it be a black day? Its a good day and a special day for Andhra Pradesh.''

Letter to naxals

The Home Minister later released a letter written by him to the secretaries of the PW and Jana Shakti, Ramakrishna and Amar respectively, inviting them for peace talks. "I once again cordially invite you for talks. The Government is making all efforts to achieve long lasting peace and to solve people's problems in our State. Let us go forward by extending cooperation to each other in this endeavour, he mentioned. Except the seventh one, all the eight clauses are agreeable to the Government," he wrote.
