News pulse, Politics | admin | January 6, 2012 at 5:15 am

In a precautionary move, the police have arrested more than 2,000 people in the district as the Telangana Rashtra Samiti and the Telangana Joint Action Committee and several other organisations have threatened to prevent Naidu’s visit demanding that he should first declare whether he was in favour of Telangana State or not.

Telangana Joint Action Committee has called for Warangal Bandh on Friday as a mark of protest against Naidu’s visit. Apart from the Joint Action Committee of the Kakatiya University students the doctors’ JAC has also declared its support to the bandh. Doctors announced that they will attend only emergency duties on Friday.

Appealing to the people of Warangal to make the Bandh successful, TJAC convenor Prof Kodanda Ram said that any political party wishing to take up a program in Telangana region should first elaborate its stand on Telangana State issue. Local TRS MLA Vinay Bhaskar was among the hundreds of pro Telangana leaders who have been detained by the police.

Vinay Bhaskar was arrested by the police when he was addressing a media conference at the TRS party office in Warangal on Thursday.

Fearing violence, police have made massive security arrangements in the district especially on the route of Naidu’s visit. Apart from the thousands of policemen, Rapid Action Force has also been deployed

Police officials are fearing a repeat of 2010 incident in which the YSR Congress president YS Jaganmohan Reddy was prevented from entering the district by TRS workers.

Naidu’s visit “Rythu Poru Bata” in Warangal is taking place amid intense war of words between the leaders of the TRS and the TDP. While TRS has stepped up its attack on Naidu and other TDP leaders describing them the main enemies of Telangana State, TDP leaders led by acerbic leader and MLA M Narasimhulu have questioned the very right of K Cahandrasehkhar Rao to espouse the cause of Telangana saying he was not born in the region.

Senior Telugu Desam party leader in Warangal district E Dayakar Rao has charged the TRS leaders with making provocative statements and created tension in Warangal. “It is the same TRS which is responsible for the suicide by 700 youth of Telangana as its leaders have made provocative statements”, he said.

Dayakar Rao said that no body will be able to stop Chandrababu Naidu from visiting Warangal. “He is coming here to express solidarity with the farmers who were facing distress and many of them have committed suicide”, he said.

Retorting to this TRS leader T Harish Rao said that the people, especially farmers of Warangal do not need any solidarity of Naidu. “They only want Telangana state and they want to know whether the TDP supports this or not”, he said.

Though Naidu has already visited other Telangana districts like Khammam, Medak, Mahbubnjagar and Nizamabad, his visit to Warnagal has raised the heckles among the T-supporters.

Apart from Naidu, YSR Congress president Jaganmohan Reddy has also decided to visit the region soon and sit on a fast in support of Telangana farmers on January 10.
