The much anticipated interactive meeting of Prajarajyam Party workers from Telangana with party chief K Chiranjeevi on Tuesday turned out to be a nostalgic affair with the latter vouching to stand by them in their fight on all public issues.
The PRP chief said he was happy to see so many people accept his invitation and come forward to rebuild the party. "I am delighted to see you all. In fact, I am humbled by your affection. Once the situation is congenial, I will resume my fight for all aggrieved sections in Telangana region," the PRP chief said addressing a gathering of nearly 500 party workers, who expressed their eagerness to rebuild the party in Telangana region.
Explaining reasons for his stand for a unified state, Chiranjeevi said it was on his insistence that the Union government had appointed a committee of experts to look into the regional demands of a section of the people. "We will abide by any recommendation or decision made by the committee, as we want people from all regions to co-exist in harmony," he said.
Party leaders said Tuesday’s meeting was significant as it was nearly impossible for them to even identify anyone with the party in ten Telangana districts. "It is more than six months that a PRP worker from Telangana region has really walked into the office extending support to rebuild the party," a member of the party’s political affairs committee said.
Party spokesman J Gautam said even though T workers wanted the party chief to appoint district-level committees as a first step towards rebuilding PRP in Telangana, the PAC would make a formal announcement on the subject at the party’s two-day plenary in Visakhapatnam beginning August 25.
