HYDERABAD: TPCC president A. Revanth Reddy on Saturday said that the 'jung siren' launched by Congress against TRS government's anti-student and anti-youth policies would reverberate across the state in the next 67 days.
Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, he said that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and KT Rama Rao cannot stop the Congress party from fighting for the rights of lakhs of students and jobless youth.
Alleging that the TRS government was acting like 'Taliban', he asked whether paying tribute to Telangana martyr Srikanth Chary was banned in the state.
"Why are we being stopped from remembering Srikanth Chary, who laid down his life for the cause of statehood? Are we paying tributes to Kasab or some other terrorists? He questioned the deployment of hundreds of policemen at Dilsukhnagar and LB Nagar crossroads.
“With such actions, Rao has declared a war against all students and jobless youth and is trying to prevent Congress from seeking justice for them," he said.
Revanth Reddy, along with several leaders, including Mohammed Ali Shabbir, staged a sit-in protest at his residence for quite a long time.
Earlier, Revanth Reddy paid tributes to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary in Gandhi Bhavan. He also paid tributes to former prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri. AICC Telangana in-charge Manickam Tagore and other senior leaders were present on the occasion.
