Telangana writers to boycott Telugu meet

HYDERABAD: Writers from Telangana will boycott the World Telugu Conference at Tirupati from April 4 to 6 and instead hold their own world meet here on April 4.

This was announced by Telangana writers' forum general secretary J. Gourishankar while addressing a demonstration of the organisation at the Telangana martyrs memorial here on Sunday demanding Statehood to the region.

He said the forum will also stage protests at meetings held by writers from coastal districts here.

Balladeer Gadar said writers right from Potana in yesteryears to present day generation had the conviction to question the righteousness of Constitution as the Centre did not keep its promise to create Telangana State which was made on a Constitutional platform.

A lecturer from Siddipet Nandini Sidda Reddy said writers, artistes and poets from Telangana were like oxygen to the separate Telangana agitation.
