Hyderabad: Congress senior leader and TPCC Spokesman T. Jayaprakash Reddy @ Jagga Reddy that the Congress party, along with the Communist parties, would conduct the Vidyaarthi Garjana in Osmania University with one lakh students and unemployed youths on June 18. He said AICC Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is being invited to address the meeting.
Addressing a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan on Sunday, Jagga Reddy said that the Congress would go ahead with the meeting despite the ban imposed by Chief Minister K.Chandrasekhar Rao. He demanded the Chief Minister to withdraw the “anti-democratic order” imposing a ban on students’ meetings in OU premises.
Jagga Reddy alleged that the Chief Minister has gone back on his promise of filling one lakh vacancies and providing one job in every household.
He said that the Chief Minister and his family members K. Tarakarama Rao, Kavitha or Harish Rao were unable to face the anger of students and unemployed youth. He said it was fear of OU students that prevented KCR from making a speech during the OU’s centenary celebrations. (INN)
