The “Save Andhra Pradesh” meeting held in the LB Stadium by the APNGOs successfully completed. Thousand of NGOs gathered over there.
The meeting Venue was named as Potti Sriramulu Pranganam while the dais was named after Burgula Ramakrishna Rao. Likewise, the main entrances were named after Komaram Bheem, Bejawada Gopala Reddy, Krishnadevaraya, Suravaram Pratap Reddy, Alluri Seetaramaraju. Cultural dais was named after Gurajada Appa Rao. The organizers had put up flexies of the Telugu stalwarts of yesteryears.
Actually the meeting was permitted to express the APNGOs problems due to the state separation. But, right from the beginning the programme seemed to be supporting ‘Samaikyandhra’.
Except APNGO leader Ashok Babu, the remaining members have failed to express their problems due to bifurcation. While Mithra and some others started their speech, about the problems due to bifurcation, they were forced / requested to divert the topic by the organizers. Mithra, Gazal Sreenivas and about 3 more others who talked on the dais are not at all employees. Of course, Gazal’s songs have given spirit to the people who have attended the meeting.
But, except the people’s sentiment, they didn’t express much about their problems that will be arised due to separation.
Though the motive of the meeting was not expressed clearly, the gathering expressed their sentiment and opposed Telangana separation. This meeting may be observed by the Centre, but it wouldn’t give positive result as they failed to express their problems clearly.
