Gaddar’s front to continue struggle for Telangana
Hyderabad, October 10: The noted balladeer Gaddar, who launched Telangana Praja Front here on Saturday, said that the new outfit was not a political party, but a political force for achievement of separate Telangana State.
Speaking to mediapersons, the balladeer said that the Front’s primary goal was to develop a political force from village level. The Front will also exert pressure on the Union government to introduce Telangana Bill in Parliament by intensifying the movement involving all sections of people. It would also strive to unite all forces fighting for the sake of Telangana, he added.
Inaugurating the TPF at Maruthi Gardens here, Mr Gaddar said that the Front would function as an umbrella and bring all the JACs together for Telangana State. At the same time, the Front would seek co-operation of the all forces which were fighting for Telangana. He said that he was disturbed by a student’s suicide note at the Osmania University. The Telangana people have given their full acceptance to the cause by giving their vote to the supporters of Telangana.
Mr Gaddar said that the students, who laid down their lives for the cause of Telangana, demanded in their suicide notes that they want only separate State but not pensions and ex gratia. The Front was established with the belief that separate State would be realized only with the movements.
Tendering an apology, he said that he too committed a mistake by failing to continue the movement after the December 9 announcement by the Union Home Minister, Mr P Chidambaram. He said that the Centre bowed down to the movement and made December 9 announcement.
Meanwhile, there was confusion in the draft plan introduced in the meeting on whether the Front would participate in elections or not. The draft copy mentioned that the Front will participate in Parliamentary elections and said that it would not allow the people to use the Front’s name by contesting the election. Earlier, Mr Gaddar in his inaugural address said that the Front’s aim was to become a political force.
The veteran journalist and Front’s Steering Committee member, Mr Pasham Yadagiri said that the Front would intensify its movement from November 1. He said that Telangana State would not be formed with the report of Justice Srikrishna Committee. The Front would fight for Telangana State after December 2010.
