To organise protest rally and block national and State highways
HYDERABAD: The Telugu Desam Party has decided to hold protest rally here shortly to highlight and expose the “scam- ridden” United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at Centre. National leaders from CPI, CPI(M), Akali Dal and seven other parties would address.
Addressing a media conference after a meeting, TDP leaders — N. Janardhan Reddy, Dadi Veerabhadra Rao and M. Narasimhulu — said it was surprising that the UPA government remained unrelenting on the demand of the Joint Parliamentary Committee to inquire 2 G spectrum allocation even as the Opposition had brought Parliament proceedings to a standstill for the last 13 days.
Biggest ever scam
The Congress-led government still did not realise that the spectrum scam involving Rs. 1.76 lakh crore was the biggest ever in country's history, they added. The date of the rally would be finalised after consulting the other parties after the Parliament session.
They said the party would also organise rasta roko on national and State highways in the next few days to highlight the problems faced by farmers in the State. They said the State government was indifferent to their problems like un-remunerative price for paddy and cotton.
They criticised the government for not conceding the demands of the contract lecturers who had been working like bonded labours for the last nine years.
They were denied salaries for the last six months.
